Many of the most successful business executives in America embrace the idea of working with an executive coach. Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Alphabet, Inc. (formerly Google) said the best advice he ever got was “to get a coach.” Bill Gates opened a Ted Talk in 2013 by saying, “everyone needs a coach.”
What do individuals and organizations gain from working with an Executive Coach? Some of the gains that have been sighted in studies are:
Executive Coaching is a targeted, customized method for leadership development. Frequently, it is a collaborative partnership among an upper-level executive, his/her organization, and the executive coach. This approach implies that the coaching takes place within the context and on behalf of the organizational strategy, objectives, and mandates. The organization is the client; the benefactors are the executive and the organization.
We want our new leaders to ‘hit the ground running’ yet on day one we may not be able to locate the ground they are standing on, how do they engage the employees, the business, the history and manage to the future? Golden Career Strategies will engage your organization and coach the new leader through the intricate web of big pictures, details, and history to help them join the flow of the business while helping to set the new course.
Successful onboarding is fundamental to the success of the new executive and your organization. A new leader that is not properly supported in entering the organization is bound to fail, over 50% fail in the first 18 months, can you afford that.
