It’s ‘Bring Yourself To Work’ DaY

Written by Christine Grimm, Sept 23rd, 2020

For over 23 years, I’ve coached executives on how to behave at work. The ultimate goal is always the same: Help this person be the best they can be as they move their team and business forward. Sometimes we focus on behaviors that are creating conflict with other people. Some engagements focus on increasing influence across the enterprise. Often we bring a new tool kit and expanded leadership thinking to up-level a team’s performance and functionality.

Set A Daily Goal

After 22 years of coaching executives, I still see one thing that keeps leaders from reaching their goals and feeling satisfied: being seduced by and choosing to chase distractions.

If you’re like most of my clients, there are always at least 10 things competing for your attention at any given moment. For some C-level leaders, who also usually have very full personal lives, the number could increase to 25 issues tugging at you on a minute-by-minute basis. If you are running a global business, the number is probably up around 100.

As an executive coach, I am privileged to be able to help leaders navigate the complexities of today’s work environment. Regardless of the size of the company or role, a common topic of discussion is driving the right actions with solid decision making.
