Executive coaching is a rare opportunity for executives to have a candid conversation about any aspect of their business and life with a trusted confidant who can help them to see things objectively.
Often executives are at the mercy of their own and others’ biased view, reducing the chance of good strategic decision making.
As elite athletes have long known, a trusted and talented coach can significantly up the game.
“Once used to bolster troubled staffers, coaching now is part of the standard leadership development training for elite executives and talented up-and-comers at IBM, Motorola, J.P. Morgan, Chase, and Hewlett Packard. These companies are discreetly giving their best prospects what star athletes have long had: a trusted adviser to help reach their goals.”
