Executive Coach – Statement of Purpose
Coaching is interacting with people in a way that teaches them to produce results that they would not have produced without being coached.
Tom Landry, former coach of the Dallas Cowboys, said that “a coach tells you what you don’t want to hear and has you see what you don’t want to see so that you can be what you’ve always known you can be.”
The kind of coaching that Landry is referring to goes beyond merely teaching new skills or new wrinkles on old ways of doing things. It alters the context in which one thinks and believes and knows so that you solve problems in new ways. Many executives engage me as their coach to move their career forward more quickly or to resolve an issue that is blocking their progress. I am often engaged by executives to coach people who report to them through difficult issues or problems to be resolved.
As a coach I do not stand at arm’s length from your work — I commit myself to your success and to the goals you have set for yourself and we work together toward the achievement of those goals — your goals are my goals.
The coaching process is individually tailored to your needs and your situation. Coaching may be a long-term, close relationship or it may be short-term and focused on specific results.
