If you think back to a time when you worked for an organization when you were the most productive, and when you were the happiest, and the most satisfied, I’d wager you had a great boss at the time. It’s often quoted that people join organizations, and they leave a bad boss. A great leader adds tremendous value to any organization, yet we often focus on technical training and completely forget that you need training to be a great leader. Executive coaching addresses the skill gaps that will inevitably surface when a person is placed in a leadership position. These skill gaps usually exist from the start, but are often not addressed for a very long period of time; it might even be years.
The skills that make someone a great engineer, or a great nurse, or a great machinist are not the skills that make one a great leader. While those technical skills are often important for front-line managers, the set of soft skills, or people skills, that are required for great leadership are a whole different ball game - one that we'd like to coach.
Executive coaching is designed to address those skills, from self-awareness and personal interactions, through team dynamics and into organizational leadership. It is the mastery of these skills that move not only the leader, but their entire department or organization, into greatness.
