You’re accomplished and experienced. You’ve achieved success.
But… sometimes you need someone talented and capable who has different experiences and a different perspective to offer thoughts and help you achieve your goal.
Eric Schmidt, former Google CEO describes the value: “Every famous athlete … has someone who can watch what their doing and saying ‘is that what you really meant’… has someone who can give them perspective. The one thing people are never good at is seeing themselves as others see them. A coach really, really helps.
I believe in introspection and advocacy. Asking good questions that forces introspection, and advocating a position when my experiences can provide value.
