Under Pressure to Perform?
Whether your are a business owner or a CEO in a larger organisation, building a sustainable and profitable business, year after year, has been compared to a successful sporting team winning the premiership every year; it’s not easy to do and any poor decision can be a disaster, both for the organisation and for the leader.
Regardless of whether a business is public or privately held, family run, large or small, business owners often need a truly independent mentor/coach who can help them through the appropriate decisions they need to make in all areas of the business, and to exceed their personal and professional goals.
We have seen business owners rely on their own circle of influence for professional guidance; using employees, investors, business associates, family and friends to help them strategically decide and tactically implement business objectives. However, this highly dependent ‘circle of influence’ approach frequently leads to decisions that impede business improvement and growth. Some leaders don’t even ask anyone for help; they believe that since they are in charge, they should know all of the answers.
These leaders see external assistance as a cost that offers little tangible returns. However, for the best business improvement results, business leaders need an outsider’s perspective to help them make tough decisions and integrate the key areas of business improvement (strategy, staff, systems, structure, sales, marketing, operations, finance, and self) to dramatically improve business performance and growth.
This external mentoring assistance can be through an executive coach or mentor and should be considered an investment that, done properly, can provide a high return to the leader, their organisation, and their team.
