The Real Benefit of Executive Coaching

Have you ever distracted yourself to inaction? 🙋🏻‍♂️Avoided a problem that you know needs addressing? 🙋🏻‍♂️Got halfway through writing a list and started actioning an item, rather than finishing the list?
These are some of the reasons that I, and my clients, appreciate about the coaching process. Coaching provides an opportunity to look at an issue or problem uninterrupted, without distraction, with someone who’s only purpose is to ensure that you achieve your outcome. Sometimes it can be just about exploring options, other times working through an issue or seeking alternatives, others it is about challenging your assumptions. 
Sometimes hearing your ideas reflected back at you, or with a metaphor or image that brings it all together, is all that you need to move forward on an issue you were stuck with.
With distractions of every form at our fingertips 24/7, it can be hard to focus time to think and problem solve. Coaching can be part art, part science, part intuition – just like our thought processes.
Working with leaders to solve problems and take on new challenges is one reason why I love to coach – and have a coach myself. 
What are you avoiding that you could do with focussing on right now (instead of reading social media?)
