I am always amazed how few executives or senior leaders don't have a coach. Even more worrying is that very few see any value in it. They have made it, have lead teams for a long time and so they don't see the benefits that investing in an executive coach could bring them. However, when discussing coaching with them, I usually draw parallels to elite sports men and women. Despite being at the top of their game the likes of Tiger Woods, Bradley Wiggins and Ronaldo all have coaches that continually help them to become even better and deliver more consistent improved performance. The light bulb is usually turned on during the sports discussion but perhaps culture and fixed mindsets are against us!
