Are You Coachable? Self-Assessment

Successful executives, business owners (Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg) and super-star athletes (Tom Brady, Steph Curry) often speak about how coaching has been instrumental in catapulting their careers and personal success. They also attribute coaching to their honed expertise in coaching others. According to a 2013 survey by Stanford Graduate School of Business professors, 51 percent of senior executives reported they "receive coaching or leadership advice from outside consultants or coaches." To greatly improve your leadership influence or executive influence with an experience coach, you first must be coachable.
