The testament of a true leader is to be a life-long learner. While I have more than a decade of leadership experience, I know I need to hone and sharpen my skills so that I can help others grow and maximize their potential.
In my opinion coaching is more personalized, we talk about very specific issues that I am facing, and it is less academic and more situation specific. I appreciate having unbiased feedback and proven tactics to help me accomplish my goals.
Open, honest dialogue that has allowed for self-reflection. Tools that help me understand how I lead and what the opportunities are for growth as a person and a professional. Lastly, speaking with a skilled, thoughtful person who is helping guide me towards the change I want to see has been tremendous.
