in Best-Practices Leadership,Hiring,Human Resources,Leaders & Managers,Leadership Skills

Hiring a professional or executive coach might be all the rage, but according to the Center for Creative Leadership, a coach isn’t always the best choice, even though you do need help. You do not need a coach when:
  1. You need to solve complicated business problems. You need a business consultant, not a coach.

  2. You need to resolve a deeply personal issue about your sense of well-being. You need a psychologist or counselor.

  3. You need to determine how the internal politics of your organization affect your career. You need a trusted person in your organization who can serve as a mentor.

  4. You need to learn new skills. You need to take an appropriate skills course.

  5. You need to evaluate whether you’re on the right career track. You need an expert career counselor.
