Executive Coaching – Sparring Partner at your level

You deliver top performance day-in, day-out. As a result, the private person in you may suffer, or even your health.

The higher you have climbed the career ladder, the more lonely you may feel. Not because you have too little time to invest in your network, but because you possess influence. Influence is sexy, but it can lead to loneliness. Those who possess power lose the honest feedback of the immediate circle. People in your vicinity feel dependent on your good mood.

Leaders in earlier times – kings and queens – found a way out of this dilemma. For them, the court jester was the source of truth. Although he also earned his crust from the king, he was free of royal praise. The role of the court jester is also independent of promotion – there is no step up the career ladder. Here lies his strength and courage in saying unpleasant truths to the king.

Business leaders who are strong in reflection are one step ahead. They are strong in embracing change, as they are well in tune with their manner of thought and take responsibility for their actions.

Do you have a jester in your circle? Someone who places a mirror in front of you, so you can see yourself for who you really are? More and more leaders make use of a personal coach. Have you found yours?
