As the old joke says, you only need one coach to change a light bulb, but the bulb needs to want it!
We have been asked, far too often, to intervene in organizations where management sees the problems always originating somewhere else. While natural, this perception is impossible. Organizations exist as a product of their management, not against or independent of it. It was managers actions that made them into what they are, not anything or anybody else. Therefore, there can be no organizational change without personal change.
Executive coaching is the best and most effective change exercise available. It can help people understand and reflect on their values and their beliefs and their life goals and find better, more productive ways to achieve them. It can help you understand which of the beliefs you hold are actually counter-productive and how you can go about changing them. Last but certainly not least it can help you ask yourself all the good questions that will lead you to the answers that take you to the next level.
While we can not provide people with the motivation to change, we can help them on the journey once they embark on it. If this is a part of a bigger transformational exercise, so much the better, but if not, we can still help individuals make the individual paradigm shift.
