The sure sign executive and leadership coaching is for you….

Do you wonder whether you would make a good executive and leadership coach?

After almost 20 years leading the Center for Executive Coaching and running my own coaching practice, I can tell you that there is one thing that just about every natural executive and leadership coach shares. There are a few ways to describe it:

1. Throughout your career, people have come to you for coaching and mentoring — whether it was part of your formal job description or not. People view you as a natural coach and mentor.

2. When you look back on your career, your most rewarding moments came when you helped develop someone to be more effective or advance in their careers. In fact, you might not have enjoyed everything about your various roles or certain cultures, but always loved when you helped develop others.

3. You feel something akin to a calling to help people get unstuck, build stronger organizations, or solve big problems related to leadership and/or organizational development.

If any or all of the above desribe you, and you have a track record of success in your career, then you have the potential to be a really successful executive and leadership coach.

Get started with your training and certification now so that you have the skills and can jump in at anytime.
