What comes to mind when you hear the word coach? Is it sports? Are athletes the only people who need a coach? The role of an executive coach is to assist others with reaching their full potential. Everyone should have the opportunity to maximize their potential. Three (3) reasons why we all need a coach are:
- Intentional Growth
#1: Intentional Growth
Are you leading your growth or is your growth leading you? If you let growth happen, you become a part of someone else’s plan and purpose, rather than your own. Coaching provides you with the opportunity to be intentional about your growth by looking within to discover where you are and where you want to go in your personal and professional growth journey. A coach is completely focused on your goals and believes in you and your success.
Think about goals you have set for yourself, but have not successfully achieved. Did you write them down? Tell others? Have an accountability partner? When you are accountable to others, your rate of success increases, and when you have an accountability appointment (in this case, a coaching session), it increases significantly. A coach walks alongside of you and asks thoughtful questions that bring awareness and clarity of your opportunities while offering accountability to developing and achieving your goals.
Being productive is about more than crossing items off your list. It is about aligning your values with how you spend your time and prioritizing where you focus your attention and energy.
