Top 10 Insights into Why Leaders need Coaches

In light of football season being in full swing, I thought a tie in with coaching would be fitting. Athletes absolutely need coaches to become disciplined and strategic in their game, whether it is a team or individual sport. Could the same be true for captains of industry, business and thought-leaders? Is there someone who can guide us to bring out the very best we have to offer?

According to The Leadership Crucible the Executive Coach can do just that. They are no longer a passing thought, but a necessity to take your business game to the next level, making you a competitor. This infographic –  Everything you need to know about Executive Coaching  – outlines why leaders fail, how executive coaches make an impact, what famous leaders have benefited from the council of an executive coach and the benefits of being coached.  

As January rolls around each year, we make resolutions to be better today than we were yesterday. I would think much like a personal trainer, an executive coach can make you an elite leader, which is great for you and fantastic for your organization.

  • I appreciate the abundance of useful content you distribute. But as I clicked on your catchy title for this post, in order to learn the “Top
    10 Insights into Why Leaders need Coaches”, I was pissed that I got sucked
    into something totally different: some other company’s slick ad asserting it will tell us “Everything You Need To Know About Executive Coaching.”
    Really? This is beneath you guys. Big mistake.

    I thought the title could have aligned better, but overall I thought the infographic presented useful information and seems to be cited pretty well. I’m wondering what some pitfalls of leadership coaching could be. I’m interested in knowing more about how to be confident you’ve chosen the right coach.

  • @Jim – I think a personal discussion, testimonials, being able to speak to clients/ex clients – all should be part of the mix.

  • Jim, The section in the infographic on “What to Look for In a Coach” covers much of what you’re looking for. That said, if I could boil down “confidence in your coach” to one thing, that would be the coach’s efficacy in helping you achieve the results you’re looking for. In a nutshell, that’s what great coaches do (using solid coaching methods, tools, techniques, and approaches of course.

    There’s a more human way to do business.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.
