If you are a company leader or senior manager, you’ll no doubt be aware that it can be a hugely enriching and exciting role. However, at times it can also be stressful, anxiety provoking or isolating, even for the highest achieving and accomplished leader.
Over the past few years with the dawn of the pandemic, mental health and workplace wellbeing has been higher on the global agenda. Mental health issues are being recognised more and more as an issue that needs to be effectively addressed for the wellbeing of the individual, workforce, and the world. While investment is well underway to enhance workplace wellbeing, those in leadership roles are amongst the most vulnerable, with research data indicating that 49% of CEO’s struggle with a mental health condition, and managers experience more stress than any other employee group.
CEO’s or senior managers can experience:
- Burden of responsibility
- Negative Thoughts
- Loss of direction
- Sleep disturbance
- Substance misuse
- Imposter syndrome
- Fear of failure
High performing leaders are likely to suffer in silence, feeling like they have to be seen to be in control and able to cope, have all the solutions to any issues, and have their stuff together, leading by example. Leaving these stress factors unaddressed can have a detrimental impact on leaders professional and personal lives. Alternately, leaders may not yet realise how and whether they are being impacted by any of the aforementioned factors. Coaching is a great tool for high functioning leaders whose performance, mindset, and development is impeded by some of the factors mentioned above.
I am passionate about helping leaders to look to their future and shape their development and wellbeing. I also enjoy helping them gain insights and overcome barriers in their mindset and their performance.
What Is Executive Coaching?
Many people debate the difference between coaching with therapy. While there is an overlap between the two, broadly speaking, the therapy work I do with therapy clients therapy tends to often be about deep emotional exploration and healing from the past to affect the present and future.
Executive coaching is about you the coachee, and I the coach, working in equal partnership to have a concise, powerful, thought-provoking, future-focused, action-oriented, and results-driven conversation. This helps you to both identify problems, or things you want to change/improve, and to unlock the solutions which lay within you, creating significant sustainable change.
