Today’s business environment demands that both organizations and individuals perform at much higher levels than in the past. As a result, leaders must stretch themselves as well as others to achieve challenging goals and bring about real change in often compressed periods of time. What worked for the leader in the past may no longer be sufficient to effectively address new challenges. In this situation, the leader may begin to experience difficulty and to struggle which in turn may result in untimely decision-making, strained interpersonal relationships, and job burnout. Yet, to whom does the leader turn for help and feedback? This is where people, teams and organizations turn to Jeff Wolf to become the catalyst to accelerate change and achieve positive results.
His coaching has delivered dramatic results because he realizes one of the most important aspects of coaching: coaching is not about him, but about the person being coached. He believes people have the answers and solutions and if they want to make a positive behavioral change, Jeff provides techniques and resources for his clients to identify and implement their own solutions. He is there to provide a catalyst for change. He believes great coaches equip people with tools, knowledge and opportunities they need to help them focus on the specific goals they want to achieve.
Being a manager or the leader of a business today is more demanding than ever. The pace, complexity, and uncertainty have all increased. The margin for error is razor thin, and the cost of management mistakes is so much higher. Your effectiveness as an executive is inextricably tied to your ability to lead and motivate your team. But you didn’t become a leader overnight. You’ve worked hard at your career step by step, exhibiting a level of energy, vision and focus that sets you apart from others. You know what distinguishes a good leader from an exceptional one — and that there is always room for improvement.
While showing, telling and teaching have a legitimate role in business situations, coaching is a collaboration, and a much more mutual and interactive process, in which the coach assists his / her partners in finding their own answers. Truly effective coaching is a process of mutual discovery, which creates an environment that enables the meeting of business challenges, fosters innovation, and enhances overall development.
The tools of the coaching process — dialogue; goal setting; feedback; advice, and encouragement —are used in a customized, innovative manner, are very much hands-on, immediate, and are focused on specific individual and business needs. Individuals or groups who are “well coached” develop increased capability over time. They become better positioned to execute both short and long-term business strategies and goals.
