“Looking For Executive Coaching In Phoenix?”
Most people in corporations believe that being given the chance to work with a coach is a positive thing, and so we seldom find ourselves being asked to explain the benefits of executive coaching.
People typically come to us already knowing that they want to engage a coach and having a fairly clear idea of what they expect from the relationship.
So, when a recent prospect asked recently how he would benefit from working with an executive coach in Phoenix, it was a good opportunity for us to reflect on the positive outcomes of coaching.
So here are the key positives we’ve observed over almost three decades of executive coaching in Phoenix and seeing what happens when clients take full advantage of the opportunity.
If you go into your next coaching engagement with an open mind and a real willingness to grow, you can reasonably expect to reap these benefits:
This sounds simple but is actually very important.
Research shows us that most of us don’t see ourselves very clearly and that it matters: accurate self-awareness in leaders is highly correlated with organizational effectiveness and profitability, and employees usually prefer to follow leaders who see themselves clearly (and are willing to share their perceptions).
When you engage with a good executive coach in Phoenix, they will generally gather input about how others see you at the beginning of the engagement and share it with you. (The best leadership and executive coaches will also pattern the feedback into key themes, to further clarify others’ perceptions of your key strengths and growth areas.)
Throughout the coaching engagement, your coach will also share their perceptions of you, based on observation of you and your interactions with others.
On another note, if your coach is effective, he will help you build skills to see yourself more clearly: to question your assumptions about yourself and improve where you’re strong and where you need to grow and learn to see yourself with “fair witness” eyes.
For a long time, we’ve often seen leaders run into problems because of their inaccurate assessments of those around them.
You may lose good employees because you don’t recognize and support their capabilities or keep poor performers too long because you think they’re better than they are.
You may struggle politically because you over-or underestimate someone’s ability to have an impact on your career success.
Good and insightful executive coaching in Phoenix will often provide neutral and accurate perceptions of those around you than you will, and your coach will share those perceptions with you (especially if he is doing other work in your organization).
And — because skilled executive coaches work to make their coaching clients independent — we will also help you apply the same mental skills you learned for seeing yourself more clearly so that you can become more accurate in your assessment of others.
We all have a set of abilities and responses that may serve us well as mid-level employees, however, that won’t help us as more senior leaders.
For example, we help you to see that your success depends not only on the quality of your own work but also on your ability to inspire and direct others.
We work with you to help you learn the necessary skills and shift your mindset — and embrace new, more useful tools in your “leadership toolkit.”
Having effective and supportive executive coaching in Phoenix can also help you see and leverage strengths that you already have but that you may be underestimating.
Coaches help you see the uniqueness and value of your capabilities and help you to learn how to lean into it in order to use it more effectively for the benefit of your team and organization.
Leaders will dramatically limit their effectiveness by only being willing or able to build strong relationships with certain kinds of people.
And all too common, that means people who are like themselves — in background, race, gender, beliefs, or work style.
Great executive coaching in Phoenix can help you recognize that tendency in yourself and work against it, both by helping you see and question the limiting assumptions you make about people who aren’t like you, and by offering you tools to support you in understanding and creating strong and vital working relationships with a wider variety of people.
This is the bottom line for an effective coaching engagement.
Good executive coaching in Phoenix, can help you get clearer about your goals and dreams, and about what you’re capable of doing in order to achieve them.
A coach can also be a powerfully useful support system on your journey as they become someone who knows you very well and wants the best for you but is also a neutral third party.
Unlike your family or employees, your executive and leadership coach isn’t dependent on you for his success.
We will be honest with you about how you’re doing, reminding you of what you’ve said you want to achieve and letting you know what you’re doing that’s supporting your intentions or even getting in your way.
Finally, and most important executive coaching in Phoenix, can teach you new ways of thinking and operating new skills that will allow you to better reach your goals and create the career you want.
We’ve seen hundreds of corporate executives and coaches grow in these ways as a result of working with skilled leadership training and executive coaching.
Executive coaching in Phoenix has become so popular during the past couple of decades, that there are a lot of people working as coaches who won’t necessarily be able to support you in these ways mentioned herein.
If you’re not willing to go through the often-daunting, frustrating, and embarrassing process of acknowledging that you need to grow, and actually doing what it takes to grow, you won’t benefit from having a coach.
No matter how old you are or where you are in your career, if you want to get the most from having a coach, you have to be willing to be a novice in some areas. Like any new endeavor, working with an executive coach in Phoenix can be challenging and even a little scary.
However, provided you’re brave, committed, and curious, you’ll find your coaching relationship can be a powerful catalyst to becoming the person you most want to be.

I was a client of Dr. Bob’s at my previous employer. I spent hours in one on one sessions with him that centered on leadership evaluation and coaching as well as resolving conflicts between members of my teams. His value and the results of my time with him reinforced what I knew about me as a leader and strengthened the relationships I had with my onshore and offshore peers, direct reports, supporting teams.Richard TavillaIT Program Manager
