When do I need executive coaching?
Whether you’re in the early days of your startup or you’ve been at it for a while now, every business owner can see some value from executive coaching. No human, no matter how great their charisma and business sense, has something to improve on if they want to be an effective leader.
Of course, there are certain times in the lifespan of your startup where you may need more help than others. Ask yourself:
– Are you unsure of the next steps you should be taking?
– Do you feel lost, alone, or isolated in your position as a CEO or founder?
– Is there a particular skill set you want to develop?
– Is there a particular goal you want to achieve?
–Do you want to be able to inspire your team to reach their full potential?
– Do you want to take advantage of a coach’s knowledge for your company?
If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of these questions, you may benefit from the coaching relationship. Our CEO coaches will tailor your sessions to focus on any specific areas you’ve identified and clarify what steps need to be taken to help you improve.
Who are you accountable to?
While being the CEO of your own startup is great for personal freedom and pursuing your passions, it can be hard being at the top.
Whether you’re just out of school or you’ve been working a job in the 9 to 5 realm for years, you’re probably used to having someone who oversees your work and keeps you on task. Even if you are a co-founder, chances are that the other founders of the startup are just as inexperienced or may feel uncomfortable about broaching certain subjects. This means that certain areas that we need to improve on are left unchecked, which can in turn have a negative impact on our team and company as a whole.
It can help to have someone to answer to, someone who cares about our progress and wants to push us forward, someone who can see past our blind spots and call us out on them. A coach can push us out of our comfort zone, give us an objective view on our situation and help us to focus on what it is we really want. Through these conversations, a coach can guide us towards our goals and give us the training we need to put them into practice.
If you want someone who can help you reach your full potential as a leader and keep you on the right path, our executive coaching program is perfect for you.
Supporting you in your journey towards success
The startup world can be rough. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, over 60% of small businesses and startup teams fail in the first three years. There are a few common pitfalls: poor market research, an unsuitable business model, mismanagement, infighting between co-founders and poor cash flow.
If you want to avoid the growing pains that cause so many startups to falter, consulting someone who has been in your shoes is the best way forward. By streamlining the trial and error process that so many founding teams struggle through, you’ll be on track to success far quicker.
Executive coaching is a safe space for founders to talk through any problems they may be experiencing and work with their coach to find a solution.
We can help with a number of areas: business development, leadership skills, decision making, cultivating effective relationships, building high-performance teams, creating a strong workplace culture, dealing with the challenges faced by startup CEOs, and other areas of your life in need of coaching.
