Most people at some time in their career find themselves in situations where the stakes are higher. The business landscape has changed, joined a new organisation, been promoted, given new challenges, opportunities and responsibilities or are on a development track for potential promotion. Unfortunately, the day job rarely stands still long enough for people to create the additional focus that is needed to rise to the challenge or to think strategically about what it will take to succeed. They are often constrained by their ‘tried and tested methods’ unaware of what they don’t know, they can feel alone and unsupported at best, stressed and under pressure at worst. As a consequence, if they always do what they have always done they are unlikely to succeed, they will face undue pressure, have their confidence eroded and be slow to develop and grow.
Therefore, providing an external and objective perspective, bringing new insights and experience to bear to build confidence and help accelerate the rate of change for individuals and teams is critical, take on a coach!
