Why Enlist the Services of An Executive Coach?
Executive coaching requires a different approach versus traditional leadership or business coaching. The fundamental reason why a company would want to hire a firm to provide executive coaching is to examine their corporate culture, identify gaps in achievement or leadership, and then provide training and pathways to instill a new, more effective corporate culture.
This is more of a revision in terms of corporate culture versus an overhaul of policies and procedures. The idea is to transition leaders and employees alike to more of an “all in” mindset, versus just coming to work each day and punching the clock.
How Does an Executive Coach Help Leaders in Business?
Leaders know that to remain effective and continually increase productivity, one must enlist the services of a coach. Executive teams also understand that corporate culture can set the overall tone and direction of their business, and can prove to be the linchpin for success. For example, the Chick-Fil-A group, led by the Cathy family, has set a corporate tone of being “servant leaders.” This means that the executive leadership truly lives for the opportunity to serve their employees, their shareholders, and the public.
The message to all of their employees is loud and clear – “treat others as you would want to be treated, and take pride in the service that you are providing.” This corporate culture has proven highly successful for the Chick-Fil-A group, and no doubt the efforts of an executive coaching team had some bearing on establishing this tone. Executive coaches do not always look to overhaul an entire business’ tone and direction. Sometimes a simple tweak is all that is needed to enhance the perception of the organization and to improve productivity.
