Excellent performance as an individual does not necessarily lead to success in leadership roles.
Developing leaders at all levels to effectively address increasingly complex issues is critical to an organization’s bottom line. Across industries, high-performers are promoted into leadership roles based on their work in previous positions. Succeeding as a manager and executive, however, requires a different skill set. Some have it, but many don’t. The good news is that these are learned skills.
Executive coaching offers a powerful opportunity for smart and accomplished professionals to successfully move out of their comfort zones and rise to new challenges as they gain more responsibility and visibility in management and leadership of their organizations. Coaching provides a confidential environment where leaders can speak candidly, brainstorm, and problem solve, get objective and non-judgmental feedback, and develop skills and strategies tailored to specific situations. This work is how change and innovation happen, providing a huge ROI to employers.
High performers are key to an organization’s success, and many begin to start looking for other opportunities when they see their employers not working to improve issues of management and leadership. Navigating a path forward that leads to new opportunities similarly requires a different skill set than demonstrating high performance in the workplace.
