Top athletes have long understood the value of a good coach. But why does an executive, manager or salesperson need a coach?
No matter what kind of performance you are trying to improve, a coach adds the power of observation and brings a new perspective to your thinking. There are two things you simply can't do for yourself. You can't observe yourself objectively and you can't remove your own bias from your thinking and decision-making. Often, the people around you can't effectively coach you either because they bring their own bias and agenda into the conversation.
Even if you work to avoid it, you ultimately draw conclusions in life based on the convictions you already have. A coach can objectively help you identify and evaluate your perspectives and help you shift the ones that are getting in the way. Achieving breakthrough leadership is often about removing barriers that are keeping you from making the most of your knowledge, skill and experience.
At 4th Gear, we understand how to ask the right questions, listen, observe, and then help shift your thinking to create a different perspective. We help you take a fresh look at your business, your people, and yourself. That creates new opportunities for you and your business.
What would your business be like if every leader was performing at their full potential?
The margin for error at this level is small but the positive impact you can have on the organization is worth the risk. The decisions you make affect the very future of the enterprise as well as the lives of everyone in the company. As a leader at this level you must be keenly self-aware and have amazing clarity about your strengths and shortcoming.
You are building and running a high performance team and they expect you to help them succeed. They view it as your responsibility to develop them and help them achieve their goals and dreams. How well you do that will largely determine their commitment to their job and the organization.
