PEAK PERFORMANCE EXECUTIVE
What was once looked upon with curious skepticism is now embraced as the way to a more enriched workplace. Executive coaching has boomed as an industry for one reason and one only – CEO’s, managers, small business owners, and leaders discovered that it works.
Here are seven ways executive coaching benefits you as a leader:
- Heightened self-awareness
- Improved self-regulation
- Higher levels of empathy
- Boost in cognition at work
- Increased levels of motivation
- Better social skills
- Improved leadership abilities
Executive coaching works so well that approximately 1.5 billion dollars was spent on it just last year. Most of the larger companies across the globe employ coaches for upper management. What makes executive coaching so attractive to CEO’s? What is it that they hope to gain? In one study coaches were asked what was the main subject area for which they coached CEO’s, the answer overwhelmingly was “self-awareness.” Coming in second place were “interpersonal skills, listening skills, and empathy.” However, upon closer analysis of these skills and a portrait of emotional intelligence emerges. An increase in the former, results in an increase in the latter, which is extremely important for the leadership positions of managers and CEOs.
