Things That Get in the Way of Executive Coaching

Too many executives receive poor or no coaching. They miss opportunities to become more effective in their positions of influence and are often denied promotions they deserve.

Some leaders struggle in their careers, failing to recognize that hiring an executive coach can help them enormously. It’s the right tool to alleviate common leadership problems, but executives frequently don’t take advantage of it. They don’t know how to get the most from coaching to improve their performance and enhance their career growth.

While hiring the wrong coach can be a waste of time and money, hiring the right coach can also be wasteful if the executive isn’t fully engaged in the process. As an executive, you can get more out of coaching when you are fully informed about things that can get in the way of your progress.
