The Difference Between the Best Executive Coach and a Good Executive Coach is Enormous

Executive coaching with an Optimal Thinking Executive Coach averages $11.98 for every dollar invested over a 12-month period. Senior executives often experience our coaching as the most profitable investment of their entire careers.

During this unprecedented time, leaders must demonstrate unparalleled agility and make tough decisions. While we can anticipate some consequences of this global pandemic, much remains unknown. The most successful leaders are optimizing the pivot to a collaborative virtual contact-less world with minimal disruption.

Are you maximizing opportunities, collaboration, and accountability in the virtual business environment? Do you need to optimize workplace and workforce readiness to accommodate this accelerated pace of change?  Are you ready to optimize your virtual leadership skills and achieve optimum communication and solutions?

There are many good executive coaches who use acceptable methodologies to achieve good results with clients. And then there is top tier executive coaching for savvy executives. Optimal Thinking Executive Coaching is unlike any other, which is why CEOs, YPO leaders, motivated senior executives, and rising stars in diverse industries count on us to optimize leadership coaching.

Six Thinking Patterns That Sabotage Executive Performance

While conducting evaluations of more than 950,000 executives in thousands of companies and numerous industries, we uncovered six common thinking patterns that sabotage performance.  For example, some executives perform exceptionally well and achieve great results for a while, but their performance is erratic. When they can’t make a difference or don’t receive enough recognition, they cycle back and forth between extraordinarily positive and extraordinarily negative performance.

Others perform exceptionally well and achieve great results, then slip into mediocre performance. They have competing internal drivers and fall prey to an internal power struggle. They have difficulty achieving noteworthy careers because they find it hard to stomach the rejection inherent in being outstanding.  Many are conflict averse.


Why Optimal Thinking Executive Coaching Has the Greatest ROI

To overcome each shackling pattern, an entirely different strategy is necessary. A one-size-fits-all prescription could severely exacerbate underlying issues, especially with senior executives.

Instead, the Optimal Thinking leadership coach provides an objective sounding board and helps you to best overcome limitations. Your Optimal Thinking executive coach provides the mental technology to consistently optimize your performance. Together, you:

  • Deploy the best practices of the most successful leaders in diverse industries
  • Develop and maintain critical virtual leadership skills to best deal with crises and competition
  • Align individuals and your team with the corporate values and objectives
  • Optimize trust, accountability and performance with your boss, peers and direct reports
  • Minimize “turf protection” and optimize conflict management skills
  • Optimize in-person and virtual executive presence and people skills
  • Create a “Best Place to Work” environment
  • Avoid burnout, and balance your personal and professional lives
