Okay, listen up, Divas. You need help! Say what now? Yep. You, Ms. Thang … Ms. “I Got This!” … Ms. “Nobody Tells Me What to Do.” Um-hmm, you. Now I’m not talking about “You need help” as in you’re cray cray. (And some of us might be, but we’ll save that for another blog post). I’m talking in terms of figuring out WHAT’S NEXT in your life. With your career. It may be time to hire an executive coach. Now, if you’ve already used the services of an executive coach, then you might want to skip this blog post. You’re already ahead of the curve. You are a Super-Duper Diva! But for the rest of you mere Super Divas, allow me to share four reasons why you just might wanna Coach Up in order to Boss Up!
Reason #1: You find out what you don’t know about yourself.
I love Marshall Goldsmith’s book, What Got You Here Won’t Get You There: How Successful People Become Even More Successful! It helped me out A LOT. Primarily because I couldn’t quite put my finger on what was keeping me from getting to the next level of success at work. His book was really helpful, and I highly recommend it. But a real-live executive coach? Told me to my face what my problem was: I worked too hard and overlaid my expectations onto everyone else and that intimidated the heck out of people. So I needed to scale it back a little. And you know what? His advice worked!
Reason #2: Divas can be selfish, and a personal coach is ALLLL about YOU!
How cool is that?
Now, who knew that working too hard could be a negative? An executive coach, that’s who. That’s why you need one. Someone who can assess you personally. Yes, you frugal Diva, you can go the cheap route and just buy Marshall’s book or any other book out there on bossing up. But if you want a customized strategy, fork up the dough. They are not cheap.
