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.
For those business leaders who have yet to use an executive coach, there is commonly some trepidation about hiring one. Some common concerns are: "Will it deserve its expense?" and "If I have someone come in to reveal to me ways to run things more efficiently will this hamper my efforts to be my own man?" Shrewd business men and women who have actually worked with an executive coach before realise the value of having an experienced and skilled coach partnering with them. You see, an executive coach is not there to tell you just what to do or why and when to do things.
