W. Shane McKenzie’s Philosophy On Executive Coaching
People’s strengths have taken them to their current level of leadership effectiveness. Only by addressing weaknesses, those obstacles that prevent you from getting to the next level of success, will you see continued professional progress. This philosophy is in stark contrast to people who tell you to emphasize your strengths, and surround yourself with people who cover your weaknesses. There is no strength so great that it eliminates your need to influence others to achieve significant results. The best in their professions reach peak success through a combination of functional expertise and their ability to lead others. Coaching addresses the leadership factor.
