No matter how seasoned, all executives encounter blind spots on their professional path. What is most critical is to recognize these blind spots and effectively counteract them. Professionals can often benefit from an external coach and mentor who acts as a guide and helps to identify and correct these hurdles. Common problems include burnout, misaligned corporate culture, employee turnover, failed business results, lackluster management teams or an overall lack of growth. Coaching can help business leaders develop awareness, inspire learning and employ tools to encourage real change against these challenges.
