Executive Leader Coach
What It's Like Working With An Executive Leader Coach
An executive leader coach is someone who works with high ranking employees. Most often, these are executives but not always. A leader coach partners with these leaders and employees to reach goals and help them be more inspiring and effective leaders.
An executive coach typically starts by understanding the current situation and where you want to be in the future. To do so, the executive coach has to really take a look at the executive to determine strengths, weaknesses, and obstacles. Your coach will also pay close attention to how you interact with others.
The coach will also work to help the executive see himself or herself more clearly. This step is vital as people tend to view themselves in a much different light. Having someone put a mirror in front of us that shows who you really are, where you shine above others, and where you need to improve can change not only your personal perceptions but also how you approach people, challenges, and everyday life.
It is no secret that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results. If you want to change your life and business, you have to start by changing things that simply do not work.
Leverage Your Strengths
Coaching is not just about pointing out weaknesses. It is also about learning your strengths and how to use them to create the life you want.
Here is an example of how coaching works:
An executive is struggling to complete all of his tasks on time. A coach comes in to find that the executive is still trying to handle tasks that should be handed off to others. In this case, the coach should help the executive learn to delegate letting go of the need for control.
The coach would also help the executive learn to balance the rest of his or her responsibilities, working as much as possible with the strengths they already possess. This could be as simple as learning the best times to focus on certain work, such as doing tasks that require a lot of brain work in the morning when the executive is fresh.
It could also mean helping the executive learn how to take better care of themselves, manage interruptions more effectively, or even creating a space more conducive to productivity. One strength of an executive coach is in learning the challenges the executive faces and finding a way around or through those obstacles.
