All great players have coaches….every single one. Behind every hall of famer is a great coach. I appreciate Mary’s efforts in moving me from good to great. As I was carrying the good to great corporate initiative, Mary coached me to overcome my own fears with changes and helped me craft methods to get my team on board with changes.
I knew I wasn’t perfect but sometimes even a high level of self-awareness isn’t enough. Mary helped me see my blind spots and potholes in the road. I didn’t avoid the potholes anymore, I knew they were coming. That was a huge help.
Even as an executive, coaching helped me immensely. It was through coaching that I was able to go from first level nursing manager to a Vice President in a year. Two years later I was chosen to lead an organization that was double this of the previous one. We all need help. Sometimes we just don’t ask for it.
Great coaching is the key between success and failure. This coaching not only benefited me professionally, it all benefited me personally. I took my first vacation in years. I learned how to be better at work/life balance. My wife has been extremely happy with the way the coaching has helped me navigate a super busy and demanding career with being an active and engaged husband and father.
