All the skills you acquired during your years in leadership roles are indispensable. However, those skills are not sufficient on their own, as you need to be able to apply them when needed and in optimal ways.
It is essential in your coaching role to continuously cultivate your analytical mind.
Be Curious &
As an executive coach, you are there to help your clients achieve their goals, and for that there must be transparent communication between you and them.
Don't be afraid of asking questions or wanting to know more information about your clients.
Sense of Pedagogy
There is a big difference between the knowledge you possess and your ability to pass it on.
To cultivate this essential quality, volunteer to share your knowledge but also be willing to learn from the knowledge of others.
Do not operate in an overly academic way by simply repeating and reciting what you know. Instead, learn to read between the lines.
Your advice should be clear and
simple. Offer your clients alternate perspectives that will help open their mind up.
Expand YourCustomer's Horizons
Don't just give simple solutions to problems, but help your clients to think critically for themselves instead.
Specify the goals and empower them with the confidence to achieve them.
If a problem extends beyond your experience, be humble to direct your customer to the appropriate professional.
Your role as a coach is to give the executive the means to progress, even if those means do not come directly from you.
