“We believe that the quality of the lives we lead equates directly with the quality of the questions we are prepared to entertain”
Whether you are a small business owner or a senior manager at a medium to large company, an executive coach can be beneficial. An executive coach can offer you an objective view of your performance as a leader and how you are driving your business. An executive coach won’t tell you HOW to run your company. They will give you open and honest feedback that will keep you on the right path.
Do you NEED an executive coach? No. An executive coach is not something that you NEED in the true sense of the word. But if you are looking to get more out of your performance, lead your team better and drive real tangible results for your business, then it may be time to invest in an executive coach with a credible reputation.
Reasons to work with an executive coach – the 3 Ds:
Our minds are full of thoughts from all areas of our life; both work and personal. We all need to dump out what we are thinking and get it out on the table. Especially when it comes to what we are thinking about the business and what direction we are heading. A coach will help reframe some of that clutter, articulate into something meaningful. They will help you make sense of what’s going on in your headspace.
Maybe you have a vague sense of something that is going on but you need help clarifying where you are trying to get to. A coach will spend a lot of time defining that work and creating a roadmap for the client. And it gives the client the WHY in what they are doing.
This is the part where we come up with a strategy or plan to help someone get from A to B. It maybe in terms of strategy, product or work related or it may be in terms of their personal life, looking at health and wellness. We stay on that journey with our client to help them get to their desired outcome and help them bring about that change in their life.
A great executive coach will keep you honest to your commitments. They will hold you accountable and ask the tough questions. At Below the Line, we see coaching as the process of connecting people more deeply with their own resources in the pursuit of established and worthwhile outcomes. By contrast, mentoring allows executives and teams tap into our knowledge and expertise. These two interventions can sometimes be blended.
We are also part of coaching networks internationally which gives us the chance of bringing the most valuable coaching solutions to clients.
