Fuel Your Business with Executive Coaching

Fuel Your Business with Executive Coaching | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

"Over the last five years executive coaching has begun to play a larger role in business life as fortune 50 and small business owners struggle to retain employees and keep them engaged. It is predicted that this type of leadership improvement strategy will continue to grow as more business owners observe the benefits. Though it may seem like executive coaching is a fix-it solution to current problems, this service can benefit companies in all phases, as the program teaches individuals to grow, reach the goals they’ve set for themselves, and become more productive. The service is not strictly a solution to gain employee rentention and boost morale, but can, and should be, utilized as a pre-emptive strike and a tool to help employee growth."

Why Every CEO Needs a Coach

Why Every CEO Needs a Coach | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Every Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is "on the stage" the majority of his or her work life but needs pre-performance quiet and confidential time to be creative, bounce their ideas off someone in a safe environment, and explore the unintended consequences of their future actions.  Engaging in a personal coaching conversation is a refreshing opportunity where the CEO can be completely open and creative in a confidential and safe place.

When asked what was the best advice he ever received, Eric Schmidt, Chairman and CEO of Google, recognized it was from John Doerr, who in 2001 said, "My advice to you is to have a coach."  Schmidt initially resented the advice, because after all, he was a CEO.  He was pretty experienced.  Why would he need a coach?

If it works for Eric Schmidt...! Why you should think about hiring coach.

donhornsby's curator insight, June 9, 10:46 AM
(From the article): I often hear myself telling my coach that it’s painful sometimes to have to be brutally honest with myself and as he always explains, it’s best to be honest with your coach as they are a sound board for you. Let’s think about this concept for a moment. If I didn’t have a coach then this conversation would be going on internally, with my inner self talk. As we all know inner self talk goes round and round and doesn’t actually go anywhere except in a negative energy field. It spirals down into a conversation of justifying and explaining why I shouldn’t do something. Controlling our inner self talk takes great skill.
Ian Berry's curator insight, June 10, 8:45 PM
Lot of wisdom in this article. For me it describes mentoring more than coaching. I know some great business coaches and respect their work. I also know that the term is somewhat tainted because of the zillions of people putting up a shingle. I prefer being regarded as a mentor which is how my clients see me

"Whatever the reasons your business use to decide on engaging with coaching, ensure that the recipients are aware of the background. Not only is it the “right thing to do” but clear communication can help ensure that desired outcomes are agreed to before starting any programme and are better able to be measured come the end of the intervention."

Strategy & Flow: So You Think Coaching Is A Waste of Time?

So I’ve heard through the grapevine that you think coaching has little value in your organization and that there will be little return on investment if you introduced coaching to your leadership. Why have you come to that conclusion?

 

Did you know that without coaching, the opportunity that training provides for permanently improving behavior, and for the improved results that could have followed, is lost? And did you know that coaching helps managers acquire the tools they are often divested of as a result of downsizing and organizations becoming flatter? Contrary to what is most often believed, coaching is not just for executives in trouble.

ICF Challenges Common Coaching Perceptions - Talent Management magazine

ICF Challenges Common Coaching Perceptions - Talent Management magazine | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

In recent years, coaching as portrayed on TV, in magazines, and utilized by celebrities has not always created an accurate perception of professional coaching, according to the International Coach Federation (ICF). “Any profession that experiences significant growth in a short amount of time will face misconceptions,” said Ed Modell, ICF president and professional certified coach. “It’s unfortunate that the only experiences many have with coaching are the parodies they see on TV or ‘quick fix’ coaching they see advertised. ICF sees it as a duty to correct these inconsistencies by educating the public about professional coaching and the documented benefits coaching can offer.”
