Too many times we see Executive Coaching as a tool in the human resources arsenalas a solution or remedy to evaluate executive effectiveness and assist in correcting Manager deficiencies or opportunities. We only use this tremendous resource as a remedy to a potential problem area and not as the preventive tool it is in forming management teams and effective leaders. Executive Coaching programs are designed to pinpoint those areas managers are less Skilled at and isolate them from his stronger areas. Executive Coaching programs if used correctly can assist management in having Stronger managers, more effective leaders and more focused teams.
In a company that is driven by creativity, individual initiative and productivity each team member as different as they may be are all driven and kept focused by their Manager/supervisor/…….leader! As Managers ourselves, it is up to us to identify where, when and how we need to strengthen our people and give our leaders the resources to become better more effective Persons. It is impossible in any corporate environment , large or small , to have departments, teams, or work groups that can operate without effective leadership. To have the ability to know who these leaders are and what resources they need as professionals is the one major responsibility of any Manager , General Manager or President.
Executive Coaching programs are an effective management tools in x-raying who are your strongest Leaders and where your weakest link is and what has to be done .In today’s business environment a company cannot afford to have second best leaders ……not unless you are to have a third rate Company!
