“… Richard always had my best interests in mind. His thorough process and personalized support allowed me to focus my efforts, present myself optimally, and negotiate the best deal. His value add was most definitely worth the investment. I can’t thank him enough for assisting me to land so quickly!! Ira
Face it: You’re a pro at “what you do”, but you are a novice at managing your career. They don’t teach this stuff in MBA schools or other higher education programs.
Success at the highest level does not come easy. But, it DOES come much easier and faster when you walk your chosen path with a “silent partner”, an experienced executive coach who always has your best interest in mind….
Click on the above picture to hear Bill Gates and Eric Schmidt explain why top performers have coaches and why you, as a business executive who wants to succeed at a higher level in your career, should have one.
No one can objectively evaluate themselves. And few executives can assimilate sporadic, random, inconsistent advice from multiple sources of uncertain value into a coherent career plan. And even with a plan, life gets in the way and even fewer can hold themselves accountable to enact their plan with normal work and life demands. And objectively self-critique and objectively decide to adjust when things aren’t going well? Not gonna happen:-)
A trained, experienced, and competent coach (Richard?) will see what you don’t see, question what you take as intuitively obvious, challenge you to re-evaluate your beliefs and conclusions, adjust your strategies and actions, and hold you accountable to act in your own best interest:
So you have more confidence and target desirable next steps …. by thinking more deeply about your career situation, take assessments to clarify your future options, and set lofty goals
So you have a thoughtful, written roadmap to your goal …. by writing your unique “career plan” that is the foundation for your current and future strategic actions
So you take more effective actions that catapult you forward to your goals…. by translating the strategies in your career plan into specific actions, productive personal networking, and successful job interviews as you are held accountable for your effort and receive expert guidance and encouragement
