A coach isn’t someone who tells you what do. That’s a teacher. Or a manager. Or an outside expert. A coach is something different.
My role as a coach is not to solve your problems for you. My role is to support you. I’ll help you see your work with an objective perspective, by asking questions, and creating a safe space for exploration and growth.
Particularly for those of you who are CEOs and Executive Directors, you know that it can be lonely at the top. It’s often hard to let down your guard, and acknowledge that for instance, maybe you feel like you’re not completely confident in what you’re doing. Chances are that you actually do know what you’re doing, but it’s important to allow yourself to air your concerns and fears, in a 100% confidential way. I only coach when there’s 100% confidentiality, at all levels of an organization.
Most leaders I’ve worked with are far more talented than they give themselves credit for. That’s not to say that they don’t get stuck. But when they do face problems, they actually have the answers. Through coaching, I help them recognize and flesh out their own paths forward.
If you’re finding that you’re stuck, or simply not achieving what you feel that you should or want to, then let’s have a conversation.
