Executive Coaching Moves You From Knowing to Doing

Executive coaching helps Endeavor job-seeking clients move from knowing to doing.

We added executive coaching to our portfolio of client services not long ago. Executive coaching provides many benefits to clients engaged in a job search. One of those benefits includes moving clients from simply knowing what they should do into the active phase of doing.

When a new client reads through materials we share regarding the necessary steps in a job search, she will often say, “I already know most of this stuff.” Yes, but do you do it? At Endeavor, we have found there is a big difference between knowing and doing.

If you find yourself knowing what you should do but just not doing it, a coach can help. Having a coach as an accountability partner can bring awareness of what’s keeping you from success, such as excuses or a lack of information. As you move through the gap, your coach will be a great motivator and your biggest advocate.

Identifying Blind Spots

Executive coaching helps clients explore blind spots and inner stumbling blocks. Once an individual understands the inner hurdle that is keeping him from moving forward, he can plot his own steps to reduce or eliminate the barriers. A skilled and trained executive coach knows how to ask the right questions for us to uncover our barriers, identify tools and techniques to overcome them, and guide us through them.

It rarely works for anyone to be told what to do by others. At best, we comply with these directives but for a short time and then go back to our old ways. Longer lasting and stronger results occur when we individually uncover the issues and craft our own solutions. We own the problem. We make stronger commitments to the solutions we devise. Working with a trained coach can help us reach the solutions faster and more effectively.
