Persistence is the road to breakthrough in CEO Coaching

I’m coaching a client over the past 90 days and we were working on him coaching one of the members of his team.  In my CEO coaching I am always helping the leader develop their unique coaching stand.  I encourage them to repeat the coaching messages over and over again.  While it seems repetitive and mundane, and leaders at times lose faith along the way — many times the breakthrough is just around the corner.  Great coaching leaders are determined and never give up!

So this week the client showed up with a breakthrough.  He said he was working with his stubborn employee and had been giving him the same message for several weeks and this week it finally got through!.  He said to the employee “I will lead you to success if you let me”. The employee said finally, and almost with relief, “I know.”

The client said to me “you said keep saying it and eventually he will hear it, but I’ll be honest with you I didn’t think it was going to occur.”  Well it did!

Decide upon your unique coaching stand, hone your messages, and repeat them time and time again!  You never know when the breakthrough is going to occur, but when it does it will have been worth all of the time and effort. 

Share with me a recent breakthrough you have had as a leader.
