You may think you have figured it all out if you are a CEO, CxO, Sales Leader, senior manager, or entrepreneur. After all, you have gotten this far on your own, right?
What if a secret weapon (or not-so-secret if you already know it) is used by most successful leaders worldwide that have taken their leadership skills to the next level?
What help have trailblazing leaders like Satya Nadella, Oprah Winfrey, Warren Buffet, Richard Branson, Bill Gates, Sheryl Sandberg, Arianna Huffington, Steve Jobs, and Tim Cook taken to become better and demonstrate outstanding leadership & impact?
All of them sought the help of a coach. Their trusted thinking partner and listening board.
But I am already successful. Why do I need a coach?
Why do these leaders and others seek out coaches? Because coaching helps you see things you might not see on your own and can help you improve skills in ways you might not have thought possible.
"Coaches can help you see things that you're blind to in yourself" - Satya Nadella.
Senior leaders recognize coaching as a game-changer that helps them identify blind spots, sharpen their skills and unlock new levels of creativity and innovation.
Through one-on-one sessions with a skilled coach, senior leaders can gain clarity on their goals, develop strategies to overcome obstacles and hone their chosen areas of leadership development which can have the maximum positive impact on them and their stakeholders. Coaches treat your discussions with utmost confidentiality, creating a safe space for you to explore possibilities and acting as your most trusted thinking partners.
Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin Group, once said, "I was always taught to have a coach and to think long-term. If you're a sportsman, you know the importance of a coach. It's the same with business."
So, if you're a leader, ask yourself:
Am I genuinely reaching my full potential?
Could I benefit from an outsider's perspective, new skills, increased focus, or a greater sense of challenge?
Am I ready to commit myself to unleash my true potential?
Am I ready to seek out a coach?
If the answer is yes, then it might be time to seek out a coach.
After all, if the most successful business leaders can benefit from coaching, why can't you? Take the leap!
