‘Executive coaching is a form of organisational learning through one-to-one conversations that facilitates development for a leader. It can be used in a variety of ways, for example, getting past an impasse, removing a stumbling block or drawing out and building on strengths.’
Any business is incomplete without executive coaches. This enhances performance and contentment and makes life much easier in the corporate sector. Executive coaches have a deep knowledge of the world and help leaders create positive changes in their lives.
As executive coaches, we are the ‘guides on the side’ not the ‘sages on the stage’ as I heard described recently. We are the unsung heroes of many executives’ success.
So, it’s an absolute delight to have a day to celebrate executive coaches. I will be showcasing the coaches in the Diverse Executive Coach Directory during the month of May, through a series of video interviews. Look out for them on our socials.
Here are 5 Ways you can show appreciation to the executive coach who has made an impact on your work and life on National Executive Coaching Day:
1. Send them an Update
Coaches love to receive messages out of the blue on how their previous clients are progressing, it will make their day.
2. Recommend them
Coaches mostly obtain their work through word of mouth, why not recommend your coach to your Human Resources Team or colleagues/friends who you think would benefit.
3. Give them a shout-out.
Why not tag them on your social media on May 1st and share why you think they are a great coach.
4. Provide a Testimonial
Provide a testimonial or review of their services, either in an email for their website, or on LinkedIn, or Google.
5. Reengage/ Hire an Executive Coach
Perhaps something has changed in your career, and this is the time to reengage your executive coach. If you’ve never experienced coaching before, National Executive Coach Day may be the catalyst for you to take that leap. Here are some resources to help you learn more.
