Having been a CEO myself, leading an executive team, I can fully appreciate the burdens that come with the job. If you are like my clients, not only can it feel extremely lonely at the top, but it can also be daunting to find trustworthy and agenda-free guidance when you need it the most.
Working together changes all of that.
I invite you to learn more.
Things to consider when looking for a coach:
They’ve been there, done it. It is important to find a CEO coach who has walked in your shoes and experienced the loneliness of the CEO seat. You want a coach who has hired and fired people, had to meet payroll, conceptualized a vision and executed profitably.
Clarity in mindset methodology. An impactful coach will have a methodology that provides structure and process for both the human aspects of leadership and the growth mindset for strategy.
Accountability systems. Your role as CEO is to generate business results. Your coach will challenge you to reach beyond your comfort zone and hold you accountable for doing the things you say you will do.
Roadblock strategies. Your CEO coach is your Sherpa for helping you climb your Everest. There are multiple paths to reach your goal and your coach has the strategies to overcome the roadblocks on the way.
Mutual fit and respect. CEO coaching is intimate, raw and emotional. I know more about my clients than some of their spouses, so there must be trust and respect.
Carefrontational, curious and candid. The art and science of coaching CEOs is founded on the skills of your coach to be carefrontational, expressing candor, caring and curiosity.
I take great pride in working with each of my clients to help them reach the top of their game so they can maximize the positive impact they make to their companies, teams, employees, families, and communities.
