PODCAST E3: CEO COACHES- WHAT DO THEY DO, HOW DO THEY WORK WITH CEOS, AND WHY MIGHT YOU CONSIDER HIRING ONE?
All- One of my bigger regrets as an Entrepreneur and CEO is that I didn't hire a Coach to help guide me throughout my leadership journey. Indeed, with almost all CEOs with whom I now work, hiring a Coach is often one of the first things that I recommend.
As CEOs (and aspiring CEOs), I want to help you better understand what coaches do, how they can help, and why you might consider hiring one. So, in this podcast episode, I interview Warren Coughlin, who has been coaching SMB CEOs and Entrepreneurs for over 20 years.
We cover a wide array of topics, some of which include: What do CEO coaches actually do? What does a typical coaching engagement look like? When is an appropriate time to hire a coach, if at all? How much do coaches cost, and how should CEOs think about the ROI on that investment? How does one find a coach? How much of the coaching process is focused on the business vs. on the entrepreneur themselves? When should you fire your coach? And countless others.
