To show you what I'm talking about...
Let me tell you the story of my client, Max.
When Max took over his family’s business from his father, he had a lot of “shoulds” in his head.
He had preconceived notions about what a leader should look and act like. He assumed a “good leader” must be overly dominant and task-oriented, which wasn’t his natural style.
Max also believed, as head of the company, people should like him. This led him to avoid facing staffing issues, which only made problems worse…and resulted in major cash flow issues.
When Max started coaching, we focused on ridding him of unhelpful assumptions and boosting his confidence in his own convictions.
We helped Max trust his gut and his unique leadership style — even if it was different from his father’s.
Since then, Max’s company has had its most profitable year ever.
They’re also preparing for international expansion !
