Who Does the Leader Turn to for Advice?
While the team turns to the leader for guidance and support, a leader may not have the same guidance available when they’re stuck, and hence, a coach can be there to guide them in times of need
Since the coach creates a safe, non-judgmental space, it gives the executive the freedom to have open conversations and discuss new ideas without anticipating any repercussions
Working with a coach shows the leader that they do not need to teach or spoon-feed everything to their team and they can encourage them to find their own answers instead
