Executive Coaching - An ancient tradition!
You can't see what you can't see!
In earlier times, the leaders, the princes and kings, were also aware of this fact. The role of the court jester is an impressive testimony to these "sparring partnerships" for the purpose of reducing one's own "blind spots".
This cooperation, classic in its core function, is still proving extremely fruitful in everyday business life today. The reason for this is the independence of the sparring partner.
Independent sparring partner
Unlike the manager's usual interlocutors, an executive coach is outside the system and is neither networked nor career-dependent of his client. Only with this independence is it possible to be a feedback provider and reflection partner at eye level!
