Professionals who move up to top management and C-level positions already possess the knowledge needed for the job. Technical knowledge, however, takes a back seat to the fundamental role of leadership: vision and inspiration.
Leadership is the transference of certainty. Stepping into a new position is, by definition, uncertain. Leaders try to balance family, work, sales, operations, money, and employees—no easy task. Their role is to set the direction and inspire the team to be the best they can be. They are expected to be a hassle absorber, not a hassle creator, all while keeping the stakeholders happy.
Who can they talk to, trust, and turn to as an independent observer? Someone who has no horse in the race and can be brutally reflective of what they see? The answer is an Executive Coach.
The right relationship can have a profound effect on the leader and the company’s bottom line by offering advice, motivation, and accountability!
