A Leadership Coach is like having your very own
Personal/Professional Consultant

If leaders born and not made, what's the point of consulting with a Leadership Coach?

You've heard it said - You might even believe it yourself - "Leaders are born, not made." Well forget all that. Successfully transitioning from a great manager to a great leader IS possible. The Peter Principle* does not automatically apply to YOU. Sure there are things you don't quite understand, or can't seem to do, just yet. That's to be expected. You're new to the role. You're unfamiliar with all the ins and outs that come with it. Know this, though:

Your success will be more determined by your ongoing
development
of your leadership skills than by whatever leadership skills you happen to have today.

Yes, leadership development is about growth. And a willingness to work on it, as you, no doubt, already are. But if those self-help books you've been consulting aren't doing the trick, maybe it's time for something a bit more personalized, more targeted - and more about what YOU need to learn about leadership - and not just about whatever leadership materials happen to be already out there. That's the GottaGettaCoach! advantage - it's not just about leadership development in general - it's about YOUR leadership development. 

In analyzing your development needs, maybe you've come to realize that you need to learn how to:

  • Think more strategically, more of the time

  • Communicate more powerfully, up, down, and across the organization

  • Collaborate more effectively

  • Demonstrating more of an executive presence with key stakeholders, and outside vendor personnel

  • Be ready, willing, and able to have the difficult conversations when needed

  • Effectively drive key business results without being a jerk!

Or maybe it's something entirely different. Regardless, consulting with a leadership coach, mentor, consultant is a key to keeping your leadership development on the fast track. Being a leader is different than being a manager - it's less about being able to advance your functional competency and more about things like influence, and confidence, and collaboration, and vision, and communications, and articulation. A compelling leader is able to make good decisions without as much time, information, or resources, as s/he'd like. It's about coaching others help you. Do so, and your influence will skyrocket. 

Do not confuse inexperience with inability

That you don't already know does not mean that you can't know. That you want to know, means that you're well on your way to knowing. So good for you that you're looking at leadership coaches and consultants. Good for you that you're interested in investing in your success by consulting a leadership development coach. Now are you prepared to make an he investment of time, money, and effort to practice, learn from your mistakes - and get some solid coaching and mentoring behind the scenes? You CAN become a more compelling leader by focusing on developing your leadership skills with an executive coach and leadership consultant. But it's a choice that won't happen by itself.
