"Every famous athlete, every famous performer has someone who is a coach," said Eric Schmidt once when he was Google's CEO.
And top athletes don't work with a coach to fix poor performance. They know that a coach can help them utilize their full potential.
How come not every business leader has a coach? Think about it...
Great to have an opportunity to speak at the EGN Event last week in front of a wonderful audience! (click here for more photos)
We also had a very inspiring workshop about Coaching by Dr. Gerrit Pelzer, who is a certified coach from ICF. His starting quote was: ”People are the key to success in any business or industry. Strategy does not drive results, people do!”, and from there onwards we learned a lot about do’s and don’ts regarding coaching, including several great exercises. One of the participants compared coaching to having a personal fitness trainer – something all professional athletes have and which more and more people use to become better… so why not apply the same regarding business and being a leader.
