From High Achiever to Successful Leader

What do you do when you reach a new level of success in your career, you got the promotion you were striving so hard for, now you're a leader, only to find that the people you are leading are jerks? Well, not really jerks, but sooo frustrating to lead, how on earth can you get the productivity from them that you need to deliver on your new KPI's? You would succeed in their role if you were the one doing it so why can't they? You try everything you can think of that would motivate you and even that doesn't seem to make much difference.

Professional business Coaches – key elements to look for

Not all coaches are equal Executive coaches can be beneficial resources to any company, especially when a business is stalled or in decline, business coaches can come in and help guide management in a suitable direction, help them change direction, address complications and get back on course. But how does one engage in securing the right business coach? Not all coaches are equal, there are a great deal of high quality result driven coaches that devote their lives to what they do, but there are a lot of want-to-be coaches that get into coaching simply because they have failed in other fields and probably should not in actuality be coaching anyone.

Always try to find a coach with a great track record, an excellent list of clients, testimonials and other evidence of effective coaching engagements, and if possible try and select somebody who has really been successful in business themselves.
