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.
