7 Reasons to Hire a Coach

Since I launched Wayfinders in March, I have frequently been asked what coaching is and why someone would hire a coach. Unless a person has had a personal experience with executive coaching, I think it is hard to grasp the transformative power of coaching.

Coaching helps executives, high potential employees, and ambitious professionals thrive in a change-dominated world. It used to be that professionals could thrive by learning a static set of skills that they relief on throughout their careers in medicine, law, and finance.

Rapid advances in technology disrupted that paradigm and leaders now have to constantly evolve to thrive in their industries and careers.

Coaching, as a field, facilitates change and development. Today’s fast-paced world is filled with fewer rules and less predictability. However scary these shifts may seem, they also create a tremendous amount of opportunity.

So, here are 7 ways a coach <LIKE ME!> can help someone <LIKE YOU!>:

  • Clarify + achieve your goals.

  • Overcome self-limiting thoughts and behaviors.

  • Create a stand-out personal brand.

  • Increase your engagement.

  • Develop strategic relationships to accelerate professional growth.

  • Hone your leadership skills.

  • Live more joyfully.

Simply put, a coach will help stoke your success - closing the gap between your performance and your potential. A coach acts as a sounding board, cheerleader, and accountability partner. Unlike anyone else in your life, a coach has no agenda other than yours. As your coach, my only objective is to help you reach your goals.

What is that worth to you?

Remember, anything or anyone who doesn’t LIGHT YOU UP is too small for you,
