Why Executives Need Executive Coaching


We have extensive experience with leadership development programs and executive coaching in the Perth area, and have amassed detailed feedback from clients. One common thread is that business owners, CFOs, and CEOs often feel under pressure to be the ultimate authority in any workplace. Often, seeking advice from subordinates can give the appearance of undermining corporate structure and hierarchy.

Consequently, many leaders feel that it is their responsibility to solve

every problem themselves.

While many executives do a great job this way, many feel they could do even better if they could trust someone to point out their strengths and weaknesses, and give them objective feedback on how to improve their performance. While the feedback of subordinates can be valuable, savvy executives know that subordinates are often telling their superiors what they think they want to hear.

Luckily, there is a solution: executive coaching. Executive coaches can be trusted to give you objective, unbiased feedback in a professional manner with no fear of consequences. Great executive coaches will observe, listen, and reflect your thoughts back to you to make sure that they are interpreting your thoughts correctly.

Executive coaches from our intensive accredited program can be counted on to have expertise and experience in your field. More often than not, they have guided their companies through situations similar to yours, and they can save you a lot of time, money and effort with their feedback. Our coaches will usually suggest that you work together with them concerning what you would like to accomplish through their coaching.

We provide our coaches with modern techniques and tools that not only help you identify your strengths and weaknesses, but also have methods to help you decide which weaknesses to work on.

Often, we are in a position to suggest an alternate point of view that someone who is busy running the company may have missed. Coaching sessions are tailored to the individual, and can include exercises and assignments to reinforce learning. Most executives find that coaching helps them balance the responsibilities of their job while ensuring that they have ample time to “decompress” and enjoy their personal lives.
