Harvard Business Review published an article last month about coaching and the benefits of the coaching relationship. I too have written a blog post about the Return On Investment (ROI) of the coaching engagement. Yet, all of this is irrelevant if the client is not ready for coaching.
“Before you decide to work with an executive coach, assess your readiness to ensure you’ll actually benefit and grow from the experience. Take a look at yourself in the context of seven characteristics of successful coachees. Are you willing to hold yourself accountable for making progress? Are you open to new behaviors and ways of thinking? Are you ready to exercise the discipline necessary to stick to your coaching goals? Expect that the experience will cause you both excitement and some anxiety, and be ready to have an honest conversation with your coach about which characteristics are challenging for you. You may find that you’re not yet ready to get the most out of executive coaching, or you may gain insight into what it will take for you to meaningfully develop as a leader.” (Brenda Steinberg, October 30, 2020, Harvard Business Review)
