Every organization wants its managers to be equipped with the skills and abilities that can maximize their productivity and enhance their capabilities to achieve goals and targets effectively.
For managers, executive coaching is becoming more and more essential, not just as a means to enhance their work potential but also to survive in the competitive environment of the corporate world.
For organizations, it is an effective technique for reducing employee turnover and increasing productivity.
Here are some key reasons why all managers should consider executive coaching:
· Enhances Self Awareness
With the interactive sessions between the coach and the manager, the process can generate significant information and insights about the strengths, aspirations, and abilities of the manager and helps direct them towards the achievement of their goals most efficiently and effectively.
Through Executive Coaching, my clients have often learned more about themselves within a short time than they have learned in years, and having time during sessions to stop and reflect on who they are professionally and who they aspire to be has allowed them to be able to take on more opportunities, pursue greater goals, develop their strengths in a more intentional way, and work through their areas of growth more consistently.
All of this combined has resulted in clients stating that their employees, supervisors, or colleagues have seen a shift in my clients throughout the coaching process, that has has also had a positive impact on clients' work culture, collaborations, and opportunities.
· Helps Develop New Skills
Evolution over time is necessary for the long term survival of all managers. A good executive coach helps a manager learn new ways of responding to situations and dealing with problems.
He or she will help the manager in improving his or her decision-making capabilities and provide effective learning activities including exercises, assessments, and other educational material.
A manager doesn't always have an objective individual they can talk through challenges and complex situations with. My experience has been that my clients having the opportunity to be coached through different challenging interactions or situations associated with professional relationships, they are able to reach much greater resolutions and reach a resolution for those situations much quicker than if they were to seek a resolution on their own.
Additionally, through executive coaching, I've seen clients realize they had additional opportunities they could pursue that they hadn't realized they had prior to a coaching session. Recognizing these opportunities has resulted in greater peace, increased revenues, more collaboration, and greater fulfillment for executive coaching clients.
· Brings Clarity in Goals
After a manager has the opportunity to analyzing his or her strengths and weaknesses an executive coach is the best person who helps the manager in understanding his or her goals and targets.
By equipping the manager with tools to understand what they are capable of achieving, a great executive coach can spark greater motivation and determination that a manager can then utilize to consistently and confidently pursue their dreams. For my executive coaching clients, getting clear on their mission, short-term vision, long-term vision is one of the most powerful things that has transpired during our coaching sessions.
These exercises alone have resulted in greater financial gain, promotions, and an even a more fulfilling home and family life for my clients as they reach greater heights professionally.
