Executive Coaching is one of the most important investments you can make in yourself. Yet some myths persist about the value it adds to your life. If you’re someone concerned with executive coaching, and wondering if it’s for you, then let’s dispel some myths and get to the facts on what coaching is and is not.

Coaching isn’t Useful if You’ve Already Achieved Something Great

You might think you’ve got all the answers, and you might think you’ve got a handle on your life. But, do you have any doubts? Do you ever experience anxiety over the choices you’ve made? Would you still feel that way if someone had guided you toward the answers you’re seeking? An executive coach isn’t someone who makes life simple, they help you tackle life’s complexities head one.

Coaching is Just Motivating

A certain portion of coaching is motivation, but coaches are more inclined to guide than to inspire. They want their clients to achieve success, whatever that means to the client personally. A good coach teaches self reflection and provides constructive criticism meant to improve your overall work. They don’t stop at motivational language, they help you step-by-step

Coaches Teach Tricks

A coach does teach tricks to their clients, but those tricks are meant only to master their own weaknesses. A coach doesn’t encourage you to manipulate others, they teach you to utilize individual strengths to form a better whole. They don’t manipulate, they empathize and teach understanding. A good coach is someone who helps you overcome your weakness with specific, targeted advice you can apply every day.
