Trusted Leadership Coaching
Think about it. Running a company is a perpetual balancing act. When you're knee-deep in technical issues and execution problems, it's sometimes hard to achieve any sort of balance, let alone objectivity. When you're in the midst of competitive warfare on a global scale, it's nearly impossible to maintain enough self-awareness and perspective to know:
- When to lead and when to listen
- When to inspire and when to execute
- When to push and when to persuade
- When to hold people accountable and when to allow them to self-correct
- When to align the team and when to allow individuals to shine
- When to act and when to be patient
- When to be forthcoming and when to hold back
You might be an extraordinarily competent and successful CEO or entrepreneur, but you're also human. Don't set yourself up on a pedestal of expectations you can't possibly live up to.
If it's your management team that needs coaching, don't leave it on a back-burner. A big part of your job is to give them the tools they need to achieve their full potential and operate as an effective leadership team.
If you're a board director, don't make the mistake of thinking your CEO was born with the knowledge and capability needed to run a company in this day and age. After all, he's only human. If you see the signs that he can use some help, talk to him.
One of the most common corporate failure modes is when companies become too internally focused, self-absorbed, and myopic. They can't see the forest for the trees. That's how many companies lose their way. In most cases, all it takes to avoid that result is some insight and an objective, outside perspective to turn things around.
