Why Seek a Coach
Updated: Apr 1, 2020
Small Shifts for Big Impact
I watched a TED Talk recently titled, “Want to get great at something? Get a Coach.” It spoke to the heart of what I do as a coach. It’s not about seeing how you can “fix” someone. It’s about how small shifts may make what they are doing even better, more successful.

A Powerful Conversation
Women who choose to meet with me for a coaching conversation reach out for a variety of reasons. Some of them want to:
Understand what’s holding them back from their aspirations
Develop better listening skills
Build more effective relationships
Hold their direct reports accountable
Build trust within their team and the organization
Explore how to positively influence others, stand out and gain a “seat at the table”
Network more strategically and leverage relationships they currently have
Understand how to navigate roadblocks set by workplace politics
Manage time more efficiently and organize their work environment for success
Develop and cultivate relationships with key stakeholders
Increase their emotional resilience
Build and sustain a high performing team
Increase their own internal/eternal awareness
Learn how to better set measurable goals, actionable strategies and priorities
Be better at collaboration and partner more on projects
Create a culture of people with growth mindsets
Go from Point A to B with Intention
Coaching makes many of the world's most successful people - from athletes to business people - accelerate their success.
The reasons above are just a few, but important. They are what great leaders need to know to advance their careers, increase their leadership acumen and enhance their personal growth. More often than not, it’s the small shifts when one engages, makes decisions or plans that make big positive impacts.
A coach could be just what you need to take your leadership to the next level.
