Why do the best individual athletes in the world all have a coach? It’s simple. Because the coach helps an athlete improve faster than they could on their own. And why do business owners and top executives increasingly turn to a business consultant? That’s right... for exactly the same reason. Coaches make you better; they make your business better.
At Whittle & Partners, we have a unique approach to executive coaching. For starters, we tell you right up front that we don’t have all the answers. We will never know your business, your people or your industry as well as you do. If you want “the answer” there are plenty of talented consultants with industry knowledge.
Our coaching isn’t about answers. It’s about questions.
- What does success look like?
- Are we dealing with a symptom or a real issue?
- What are your options?
- Are you focused on the most important things?
- Why isn’t that getting done?
- When will you commit to completing that?
There’s nothing magic about executive coaching. The magic is in the relationship, the perspective, and the accountability that comes from working with an experienced leader whose single goal is to help you improve. It’s a process, not a magic wand.
Maybe you’re that rare business leader who can self-diagnose your challenges, then prescribe a business solution and hold yourself accountable for change. If you are, then you don’t need a business consultant.
