Coaching can be challenging, even for established leaders. However executives who are open to being coached and therefore, learning more about themselves, have a far greater opportunity to achieve their full potential. Executive coaching also acknowledges the value of the leadership team and a focus on continual improvement within the organisation.
Opinions and perceptions are formed very quickly in our rush-around business world. That’s especially true when senior business leaders look around and decide which people, products and processes to invest in. Because they are likewise stretched then, many CEOs and other ‘C-Suite’ executives look for behavioural and verbal cues to reinforce what they think they already know.
Sometimes, through no fault of their own, individual leaders at just about every level of the organisation can be stereotyped or internally branded in a way that limits their career growth and development and the support they get from the enterprise.
