How Can I Tell if a Leadership Coach Can Benefit Me?

“The teacher appears when the student is ready.”  

-Lao Tzu

Executive leadership coaching goes beyond pursuing personal excellence, it pushes individuals to inspire greatness in those around them. But the journey to successful leadership isn’t easy, so how do you know if you’re ready for an executive coach? 

The Importance of Goal Clarity

It all comes down to identifying clear goals. The personal benefits of coaching are as wide-ranging as the individuals involved, so, what exactly do you want to get out of it? 

While some clients may be motivated to develop skills for upcoming career opportunities, other clients may be more performance-driven in their goals. No matter the motivation for catching excellence in leadership, clients report that coaching positively impacted their careers as well as their personal lives. Whether you’ve established clear goals but are unsure of the path to success, or you’re stuck with a lack of goal clarity, working with an executive leadership coach can have significant benefits on your career.

The Benefits of Executive Leadership Coaching

Benefits arrive because coaches challenge, stretch, and develop the critical thinking and leadership ability of the executive. Despite the outcomes of leadership coaching being wide-ranging and highly personal, I believe that individuals benefit in three distinct areas; adaptability, interpersonal skills, and goal clarity. Whether a client wants to develop and use their skills to the fullest, or better connect with and lead others, coaching maximizes and amplifies the potential success of you and your team.

Additionally, benefits include increased productivity and improved working relationships. In fact, studies show that leadership coaching boosts productivity by an average of 86%. executives that pursue coaching have been shown to improve working relationships with peers, superiors, and clients, resulting in better organized and more efficient team performance. 

Leaders often ask me how “soft” skill development translates into the bottom-line. Simply, extraordinary leaders double profits, good leaders make money, and poor leaders lose money.

Coaching is the key that unlocks the full potential, not only for you but for the success of your team. Are you brave enough to take the first step in pursuing excellence? Learn more about my approach to executive leadership coaching: CLICK HERE.
