What leaders want from Executive Coaching (29 questions leaders frequently face)
I am often asked “What subjects do Executives bring to coaching”?
I have just completed a thematic review of over 150 leaders (2020) I have coached or facilitated in the past five years. The themes and questions that emerged are below:
- How do I lead through this crisis?
- How do I adapt my leadership for a VUCA* world? (Volatile, Uncertain, Ambiguous, Complex*)
- I have my own vision and plan but how do I create a shared vision and strategy?
- How do I turn my ideas into a compelling vision for others?
- How do I successfully lead my new team/remote team/regional team/global team?
- How can I give effective feedback?
- I have a difficult decision to make and both options I can see are terrible….I feel stuck…
- How do I get my team pulling together?
- How do I get my team to the next level of performance?
- How can I motivate my team? They are tired…
