Three things will kill a dream for you: overwhelm, frustration and isolation. By far, isolation is the worst condition of all.
Every day thousands of executives will stand on a critical path and make a career defining decision in a vacumn. They do it because they have the title and the authority to do so. And, in some instances, they’ve been conditioned to think it is weak to do it any other way. And, maybe they are a bit naive. They don’t realize that no one on the ‘inside’ gets payed to tell them to their face what might bring them to their knees.
That’s the number one reason executive coaches exist. My role is to walk that critical path with you. My job is to have your back and tell you the truth with compassion and candor. Because, if I didn’t do that, I wouldn’t be a full service coach.
