Elite athletes and global leaders have a coach. Someone who helps them to be the best and most effective version of themselves. We want to believe that we can do anything simply through hard work, but if that were the case, we’d all be either an elite athlete or global leader. The fact is, we have strengths and weaknesses and gaps. Working with a coach enables you to balance and address these elements.
Many of my clients come to me with stories of poor management experiences. Whether it’s change management, performance management or internal recruitment. It’s so frustrating to hear about the same issues across all sectors.
There is a key factor that contributes to these bad experiences. That is, when people are promoted they aren’t necessarily given the support or training they require to succeed in the myriad of management and leadership capabilities.
This is why we need more people like Cam Shepherd!
