You are not alone. Many people start their business with a big fanfare and high hopes, then bit by bit, they lose their crystal-clear sense of direction and their hopes become a distant memory. Many are dedicated to their careers and then lose track of the direction of their dreams and goals.
But it’s not too late to turn things around and get your business or career back on track. And the fastest way to do this is to use an executive coach. Not convinced? ? If you want performance and growth, get a coach. Then read on to find out the top five reasons why you need an executive coach.
In turn thanks to a study from the International Coaching Federation (ICF), there are plenty of statistics that prove the effectiveness of coaching. For example, here are 4 benefits identified by clients from an ICF survey:

With the right kind of coaching and determination you can accomplish anything. Reese Witherspoon
1 You’ll set realistic goals
Your executive coach will ask you questions to get right down to the nitty-gritty of your goals for your business and career. You might think you just want to make money or climb the ladder. But your coach will ask you what that money or ladder will mean to you and your life. They’ll question you about the direction you want to take – and then help you to map out the steps to take to reach your goals. Grab your free session below or sign up to my new programs today.
2 You’ll be held accountable
When you get too busy to keep on track, your executive coach will hold you accountable. You don’t want to let your coach down, and they want the best for you. So you’ll roll your sleeves up and get going – in the right direction – prepared to do whatever it takes.
3 Your ego will take a back seat
How much ego do you put into your business or career? Not sure? How about “My way or the highway,” with your staff. Or a temper flare-up when things don’t pan out as you want them to. Your executive coach knows that ego won’t help your hip pocket. Ego can stand in the way of an enlightened approach to your business or career. It can stand in the way of having great and supportive people around you. Your executive coach will provide an ego check and give you the perspective you badly need to take your business or career forward.
4 You’ll go outside your comfort zone
Your executive coach will give you the push you need to take you out of your comfort zone and take your business or career forward. This could be as simple as making some invaluable contacts. It could be trying a new approach. Or it could be having a coach to help you get some great brand recognition or build incredible leadership skills and confidence. A coach will challenge your thinking and mindset. A coach will push you to be the best version of you.
5 You’ll learn how to make your ideas a reality
If your head is buzzing with ideas and goals for your business or career, but you don’t know where to start, ask your coach. They are great at evaluation and cutting through to what’s really achievable – and what’s not. And they’ll make sure that you go about things the right way.
Your executive coach keeps you on track, working towards your goals. You’ll have the confidence to make savvy decisions. And you’ll be accountable for your actions. And in so doing, your business and career will flourish, and you’ll make more money and gain more success along the way. So ask yourself. Can you really afford NOT to have a coach?
