Who says executives have a life? The long hours, the demands
ringing in your ears, the deadlines...oh the deadlines! I'll get back to
life sometime in the next 15 years.
An executive's life is a roller coaster of decisions. But I only want you to answer one question:
What decisions are you making now to improve your life in a significant way?
Let's ignore the thought that you may have in your head right now, the one telling you: "My life is my work" and focus on what makes up your life. What's really important?
Can you see the big picture? I'll bet that you recognize that your life has a lot more to it, than how many hours you spend at the office.
Let's see. When we think of executive coaching we automatically assign a particular frame to it - the executive world. A corporate landscape filled with men in suits.
We think of a bold, self confident and demanding top dog that calls the shots. In a sense, many executives fill that persona.
An attentive person, however takes care to separate a job from the person doing the job.
The main goal of executive coaching is to help an executive perform better and achieve results, in light of a larger corporate goal. To do this though, a coach will use an array of techniques that come from many areas of coaching.
While the focus of an executive coach remains in context, executive life coaching shifts its sites towards improving your life as an executive.
It means taking the steps that you always wanted to take-but somehow managed to avoid- to live your life according to your vision.
Do you want to change your life? There is no better time than now. Rest assured that no man on his death bed ever looked up into eyes of his family and friends and said, "I wish I'd spend more time at the office."
Will coaching help you in your role as an executive or are the results that you're looking for relate to your life as a whole?
Clarifying what your vision and expectations are increase your potential for an effective outcome, one that serve you better and helps you grow.
Making the difference is important because this will give you the opportunity to view things from several perspectives, which can lead to truly powerful insight and perhaps opportunities that you may not be aware of.
The point is this, if you expect different results as an executive, in your life, whatever the case may be, then try something different. Albert Einstein remarked “The very definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results.”
