When Outcomes Matter

Many of us launched our careers in the “Boom” years.  Talent was in short supply and advancing was a given for motivated individuals.  And then things changed.  Instead of worrying about keeping their top performers happy, companies focused on survival.  Now, there is hiring freezes, and thousands of over-qualified resumes swamp HR departments for any open position.

In this tough economic environment outcomes matter.  Today’s companies focus on the bottom line and expect their executives to bring their best to the table.  Add to this that business is facing changes it has never experienced before.  Navigating these turbulent waters is about leadership.

If you want to succeed, if you want to get ahead – you need to lead the change created by an ever-changing economic environment – outsourcing,  technological developments and the globalization of the marketplace are just a few of the many contributors.  You can adapt to those changes or you will be left behind.

Leadership is about coping with change. Part of the reason it has become so important in recent years is that the competitive landscape has become more aggressive and more volatile. If you want to succeed, if you want to get ahead – you need to lead the change to meet these new needs.

  • Change Leadership – It’s about vision. It’s about empowering people. Leaders recognize the opportunities in the marketplace and led by engaging their people to cultivate a culture of learning, adapting, and leading within their organizations.
  • Emotional Intelligence – As an executive, it is not enough to be smart or simply good at what you do.  As an executive, you need to use and manage your emotions to effectively get the best from your people.
  • Personal Effectiveness – is about establishing goals, identifying values and establishing priorities.

You can go down the change path alone or you can get help along the way.  That is where I come in.  An executive coach is your guide, your mentor.  We hold you accountable and we pick you up when you stumble.  We are in this together.

So, if you are ready to be a better leader, to take it to the next level. If you serious, I am here.

When Outcomes Matter

Does Your Business Have a Work Out Partner?

When I launched my business, I had an “office” in a walk-in closet off my living room. The view wasn’t so great. Back then my “enterprise” consisted of me and the cat. I would often venture out to Starbucks for a little human interaction. I knew all the baristas on a first name basis.

Studies have shown that we are more likely to stick with an exercise program if we have a workout partner. Someone to be accountable to, to encourage you, someone to share goals with, or simply someone to laugh with over the misfortune of the day.

And yet many of us go it alone when we launch our businesses? Why not find another business owner to be your workout buddy – you don’t have to walk into networking events alone – you can tag team the room. Someone to share with – what technology worked, what was the workaround to those Internet glitches or simply share a cup of coffee occasionally. The baristas tend to get busy!!

If you can’t find a business partner, why not consider an executive coach.  Coaching offers an independent third party perspective to your business.  It creates a safe space for you to brainstorm, share confidences and practice your approach.  You don’t have to go it alone.  In fact, most folks get help in the corporate environment.

  • An internal report of the Personnel Management Association showed that when training is combined with coaching, individuals increase their productivity by an average of 86% compared to 22% with training alone.
