Coaching has been an unpredictable career for years, changing and growing before our eyes. Through my years as an executive coach, I have often run into people who were a bit apprehensive when it came to working with a coach – either out of fear, or simply because they failed to associate the word ‘coach’ with ‘success.’
Executive coaching has changed tremendously within the last 10 years. Before, companies would hire coaches to help them fix toxic behavior at work that they were having trouble dealing with themselves. Nowadays, coaches are being brought in to help with a variety of issues, from behavioral changes to helping high-potential workers reach their full potential and even helping employees deal with work/life balance. According to the Harvard Business Review, although the field varies at different times, executive coaching is here to stay, and they are as valuable as ever. HBR conducted a survey of 140 leading coaches and asked five experts to comment on the findings. When they asked the coaches why clients kept coming back, they said it was because “coaching works.”
I’ve been doing this for over 20 years now and I can say this. Although the content of what I teach my clients has changed as the corporate world has changed, the results have stayed the same. An increase in productivity, engagement and overall employee happiness are just a few of the many changes that occur as a result of the work of an executive coach. Source Point Coaching is dedicated to producing results – a guaranteed 6% increase in the aforementioned points alone.
I find that it’s about finding the right match for you. This is why I put a lot of value on meeting my client for a one-on-one to just get to know each other and learn more about what the client is looking for, what their goals for their company are and what vision they have for the future. This is a vital part in getting to know your client to ensure that you are both on the same page, as well as to promote confidence with the relationship that’s about to start.
As a coach, I help you get from point A to point B. I give importance on the ‘now’ so that we can work on creating a better future. I aid in the discovery process of executives and teams to find their own journey and make the best out of it. I help clients learn the difference between work and home and help them deal with any emotional issues that may exist in either place. And I always involve upper management in the goal setting process so they always feel included and in the loop of what is happening with their team(s).
Executive coaching is the backbone to any successful organization. We will help you get where you want to go and thrive in the process. All you need is an open mind and I’ve got a solution waiting for you.
