Top 3 Lessons Shared By A Christian Executive Coach

By Bertulda Zerna

One advantage a Christian Executive Coach has is that they work with multiple clients. This gives them the ability to create "collective wisdom" as they work with different leaders and executives across industries and business models. There are 3 core things I have learned throughout my time spent as a Christian Executive Coach.

First, most leaders are incredibly lonely in their roles. Each of the leaders that I've worked with have spoken about how hard being on top of the proverbial food chain is. The discuss both internal and external pressures. Everyone around them is in need of something.

Employees never understand the burden and care leaders carry for those they lead. As such, leaders are always managing that balance of not feeling understood while doing everything they can meet the needs of everyone they care about.

Second, a lot of leaders worry about their own competency. They must maintain and convey a strong sense of self-confidence, discernment and direction if they are to succeed. They're constantly wondering whether they're endeavors are poised for success or failure. A lot of the executives and leaders that I work with want to know whether or not people are capable of seeing through their proverbial masks.

Last, visionaries and leaders are never able to find an end. The executives that I coach are constantly setting and pursuing new goals as soon as they have accomplished their old ones. Leaders never have the chance to feel true contentment. Another iteration lies ahead and their are always new milestones and new accomplishments to make. Leaders are guaranteed to lead, this is simply what they know how to do.

One major benefit of working with a Christian executive coach is getting help in finding the perfect path for individual goals while remaining grounded and understanding that you aren't alone. Other people will face many of the same challenges that you are currently facing, albeit in different forums. Understanding this will provide sufficient confidence and assurance for keeping you moving forward.
