Why work with an executive coach?

Executive coaching

Executive coaching offers beneficial resources and opportunities for professionals in executive roles and leadership positions to hone their skills and make the greatest impact within their professional positions. But what would that look like? How could it apply to you? Where would you even start?

Some of Warren Averett Workplace’s Career Partners International partners recently weighed in on why now might be the right time for you to work with an executive coach and provided tips and advice for how to take advantage of opportunities to partner with coaches.

You can read their full article, “Five Signs it’s the Perfect Time for Executive Coaching,” here.

Engaging an executive coach can be a true game-changer for a CEO or executive. In the article, Joan Caruso, Managing Director of New York CPI office says, “My guess is that if your CEO golfs, he or she has a golf pro, if they play tennis they have a tennis pro, so why not have a leadership pro in the form of an executive coach?”

Another CPI leader, Jose Augusto Minarelli, CEO of CPI International Brazil, acknowledges that “taking the leap into a new position in the C-suite requires a different set of skills than most have used in the past.” He goes on to explain that “as in sports, executives can improve their performance by having a coach. Coaches can lead executives to their state of excellence. Coaching helps professionals to enhance their self-awareness as well as to develop competencies that improve their performance and increase employability.”
