Why hire an Executive Coach?
Executives that hire a coach gain a crucial advantage over other their peers. When everyone is performing at their very best, the difference that makes the difference will be the leader who has the highest emotional intelligence. EQ is defined as being aware of and in charge of your emotions and being aware of other peoples emotional responses. Coaching can help develop your self-awareness leading to higher EQ.
Senior people in business value having a neutral individual to discuss challenges, opportunities and new perspectives. At Key Talent Partners, we create a safe space with clear objectives where you can develop your self-awareness and bring out your personal best.
Organisations and individuals are starting to realise the benefits that having a coach can bring to their business. Studies show that coaching is growing at more than forty percent (40%) per year.
Groups of senior managers in two multi-national corporations found that over a six month period, coaching proved to be highly successful. Scores across a range of ten key indicators averaged out at 77% effective, for example:
- Enhanced Self-Awareness (91% effective)
- Increased Self-Confidence (83%)
- Increased Leadership Skills (80%)
- Improved Goal Setting Abilities (80%)
- Lowered stress levels (60%)
Here are just five of the many advantages why senior executives hire a coach for themselves and their teams
1) The development of new strategies
A coach will help you to understand how to recognise, address and resolve common issues and how to develop strategies to cope with emotions such as stress or anger.
2) The strengthening of individual and team capabilities
You will learn how to be more confident and assured, and how to develop your own personal strengths. As well as individual development, an executive coach will also help team members to work together more efficiently and effectively.
3) Individual motivation and growth
Another benefit is personal growth – in terms of goals, ambitions and motivation. You will also develop your self-awareness and learn strategies that will help you to achieve your personal and professional goals.
4) More effective resolution of any issues
A good executive coach will be able to advise with a whole range of personal and work issues. They will also demonstrate how to achieve your full potential in different areas of your life (including your business.)
5) Higher productivity and profitability
Finally – and definitely by no means least! – an executive coach will enable you to work more productively. The end result for your business will be greater profitability. And it doesn’t end there – the coach will also be able to show you how to improve your company’s profitability more directly, through a range of versatile business strategies.
