High achievers understand the importance of having a coach or a mentor to help them get to the next level. In today’s competitive business environment, it’s no longer a luxury to have a coach, it’s a necessity.
A good coach doesn’t have to play the game as well as you do. They observe and ask questions to help you get to the next level of excellence.
Studies have proven that leaders and their teams perform better with coaching, and this performance translates into business results. Plus, coaching can help prevent leadership derailment, which some studies suggest can be as high as 33%. According to one study, coaching provided a return on investment almost six times the cost of the program.
Even as a coach, I continue to invest in coaching to continue to grow my own business. It’s more critical than ever to continue to develop, motivate, and grow yourself and your team.
A coach or a mentor can open up new possibilities, shift your perspective, and help you implement all the tips in this book. The return has always far exceeded my investment in coaching, and my clients consistently say the same is true.
