How to know whether Executive Coaching could improve your leadership
Executives who find coaching most effective are:
- Driven by a desire to develop themselves and their abilities–they are not satisfied with their own performance or the status quo.
- Willing to own their issues–they do not make excuses or lay blame on others.
- Courageous enough to be vulnerable to criticism–they walk through pain boldly because they know that glory is on the other side.
Ask yourself these three questions to discern whether Executive Coaching would be effective for you:
- Have you already made yourself to be a student of leadership in some observable way (read books, taken a course, etc.)?
- Have you ever taken responsibility for something that was not working in your organization–even when it was not your fault?
- Have you ever apologized to an employee for a mistake you made?
If you answered “yes” to all three questions, then you might meet the criteria for our Ideal Candidate Profile for executive coaching. To know for sure, take the online Executive Profiles leadership assessment. (Link/button here to an assessment)
If you answered “no” to any of the questions, ask yourself whether you would like your answers to be different. If you believe that your leadership is in good shape and that the only problem is with your people, you may not get a very good return on Executive Coaching.
