Reaching the executive level on the totem pole in business doesn’t mean you should stop the pursuit of greater knowledge and skills to support you in your role. We can all benefit from additional knowledge and executives are no different.
What is the benefit to executive level coaching?
The benefits for coaching are multi-faceted. Some intertwine and others are very clear but ultimately there are benefits for everyone, regardless of position. As an executive, you not only have company requirements but also personal requirements that coaching can assist with.
Below are 5 reasons we believe execs can benefit from coaching:
1. Life becomes boring without something new. Regardless of where you reach in the corporate world, if you don’t continue to push yourself to expand your knowledge or improve the way you handle your role, then you run the risk of every day becoming ground hog day, and that can only lead to burnout.
2. Personal development. You may be in the top position now but what if your company folds? What if something else happens that means you no longer hold the position you are in? Would you be well enough prepared to move into a new role? Coaching can also help you identify the limiting beliefs which are holding you back in life. He or she will help you break out of the comfort zone you are in and support you while you grow.
3. Times change. It is important to stay abreast of new techniques to being an efficient leader and for how to proactively implement the changes required. If you have been in an executive role for some time, it becomes all too easy to continue as you have been. You do things the way they have always been done without noticing the new and more streamlined techniques you may be able to implement. Coaching can support you in not only learning about the new ways, but providing you with the tools and techniques to implement them. The real pay-off is in your improved productivity and capability.
4. Personal sounding board. Your coach is an impartial, unbiased person with whom you can share the challenges you are facing and who will provide you with the necessary feedback and suggestions to help you navigate those challenges. Your coach will also call you out on thoughts, attitudes and actions that are no longer serving you. It’s true that you might not like everything your coach says, but you will know it’s being said for your benefit, and you have their complete support.
5. Identity. An executive level coach can assist you in not only cultivating, but maintaining a business brand as opposed to your private persona. It is important to have a very clear understanding of who you are as an executive leader, and understand how operate comfortably within your brand. Your brand – your leadership identity – represents your beliefs and values. Your coach will work with you to build a brand you are happy to become known for.
Coaching may seem like a luxury, however, with most executive positions lasting less than three years, it is more of a necessity to ensure your continued growth and continued viability at an executive level. The changes we see in executives in our coaching programs are not only inspiring but crucial to the overall success of everyone at executive level.
If you are at exec level and have not considered working with a coach, ask yourself why not. Don’t hold yourself back any longer, contact us today and make 2017 your year!
