There’s an adage that goes something like this: The older a person is, the more they realize what they don’t know.
In other words, when we’re young we know everything, but then we get wiser with age and that’s when we understand that learning is a lifelong endeavor … there will always be something new to learn, especially if we want to get better and improve and optimize our personal performance in whatever we do.
How can this apply today?
Executives and everyday business owners don’t always have the right answers to solve current problems. That doesn’t mean they aren’t the right people for the job; it means that there is always going to be something to learn that will improve their skills, leadership capabilities, and more, ultimately making your company that much stronger. The challenge is, and will always be the ability to realize that CHANGE is not your enemy, but your biggest ally. Fear of change is the number one factor impacting long term business success.
Yet when you think about, an executive has reached the upper echelons of his or her company, and maybe even the industry. They’re deep in the minutia of their business and industry and no longer have the ability to “see from above the clouds” when dealing with critical business issues. Who can they turn to in order to learn new skills, develop a new mindset, and gain that fresh perspective that will make them more effective leaders?
Look to the Professional Sports World for an Answer
Golf … the sport of business today. Even if you’ve never swung a golf club once in your life, you probably have some knowledge about who Tiger Woods is. Arguably the best golfer who ever played the game, Tiger is notorious for making headlines about continually revamping his swing or working with a new coach.
Even though you would be hard pressed to find a better golfer in the world today, Tiger works with a coach because he understands he still has a lot to learn and improve upon.
In the business world, executives and everyday business owners can lean on the expertise, knowledge, and outside perspective of coaches. The outside expert has the advantage of assessing the business landscape, personal strengths, weakness, as well as untapped opportunities or unrealized threats. We all need advice from time to time in life from an expert … someone who understands the challenges of running a multinational, or creating a new Startup, as well as growing an up and coming organization.
The Benefits of an Executive Coach
No one can truly be such an expert at any field of study or industry to the point where they won’t learn something new from an outside perspective. There is always room for growth and improvement and the moment someone no longer believes that is the moment when they become obsolete.
