Executive Coaching FAQs
Why do organizations hire Julie to work with their employees?
Most organizations realize that enhanced business results are gained through developing individual and group behavioral skills and values integration within the organization. While optimizing performance requires the intense focus of the entire team, the key ingredient to sustained performance is engaged and effective managers and employees throughout the organization.
An external, experienced coach can quickly understand and appreciate an organization’s unique cultural nuances. This includes building trust with key stakeholders, and someone who is skilled at reprogramming bad habits, identifying skill gaps, and suggesting activities and techniques to help an executive or high-potential professional to meet their goals and objectives. This in turn helps the organization meet their business objectives.
