For many businesses, their executive team is more than the leadership of the company. Their leadership may be the face of the company and the embodiment of the brand.
Since management represents the highest level of experience and expertise some businesses hesitate at investing more in coaching these executives.
But with the South African economy facing higher scrutiny from investors there has never been a better time to invest in an executive coach.
Executive coaching offers tangible results that impact every level of an organization. Here’s how:
1. Best Practices
The global economy is dynamic and changing. While your executive staff may be highly trained and experienced in your market, they may lack skills in other industries.
In the old days, this was acceptable. But as the barriers between business types are erased in the digital marketplace there is no time for silos.
An executive coach will bring best practices from all industries, not just your marketplace.
2. Continuous Improvement
To assume an executive has enough training is to risk stagnation. Every company should have an eye on the market and growth to succeed.
The same holds true to continuous improvement of management skills. An executive coach does more than offer new insight.
A business coach will create a personal plan for each executive to grow.
The best organizations need a combination of both dynamic change and stability in order to thrive. As the world economy changes there can be difficult for established executives in keeping up with the change.
Executive coaching can help deliver the best of both worlds. Rather than a huge disruption in the upper leadership of your company, coaching can help executives with new skills and perspectives on change.
The churn rate of the top CEO’s in South Africa has been higher than average recently. Investing in business coaching will allow your company to stay ahead of the change.
Executives often face the challenge of lacking perspective from their team. Not every business has an established culture of identifying issues and resolving them.
A coach can help offer unbiased perspective without bias. Most internal team members cannot.
5. Better Team Performance
So many organizations hesitate to invest in coaching because they believe their executives are already the best-trained employees in their organisation.
But if your other employees aren’t performing to a high level the problem may be at the top. The best executives get the best from their teams.
Before you invest in training your mid-level managers it is important to start at the top. Coaching for executives should raise performance across the board.
