Everybody Needs A Coach

Posted by Morag Barrett | January 19, 2013Everybody Needs A CoachIt’s January, and chances are, like many of us, you started the year with resolutions.  How are those working out for you?  Have you found yourself slipping back into old habits already?  Are you finding it challenging to give your resolution the time and attention it needs and deserves?Working with a personal coach may help you to get those new habits integrated into your routine.  Athletes train with coaches their whole career, they recognize the power of having someone who can observe them in action and provide feedback, guidance and recommendations that result in improved performance.  Developing your corporate skills is no different, working with an Executive Coach can be the game-changer that you need.  Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google was interviewed by Fortune Magazine and talks about working with a coach as the best advice he ever got.I work with coaches both professionally and informally in support of my own learning and development.  My coaches ensure that I am challenged and not working in my comfort zone.  My newest coach is Donna, my fitness coach!  I have decided that 2013 is the year I get fit.  The benefits are immense, I HAVE to turn up for those sessions, she makes sure that I am not only doing the exercises correctly and safely, she pushes me to do more than I would if left to my own devices.Will I need to work with a personal trainer for ever? I hope not, but for the near term, to help me unlearn my bad behaviors (couch potato) and learn new ones (I am planning to do a sprint triathlon in June) she will make all the difference for me.  So far I have worked out 13 of the 18 days of this year.  My coach has made a difference.At Skye Team, we bring years of experience as Executive Coaches. We work with individuals at all stages of their career providing strategies for improving effectiveness and the confidence to take action and execute those strategies.

If you are curious to learn more then contact us for a no obligation Chemistry Session.  This initial discussion is where we learn more about what you want to gain through coaching, and you learn how coaching could help you to achieve your goals.The question is less about whether you can afford a coach, it is whether you can afford NOT to work with a coach.Related ArticlesTags »coaching Share2
