Regular physical checkups are a good idea. Your doctor recommends them, not because you are sick, but to identify conditions that could make you sick if they are not nipped in the bud. That includes life style habits that could have long term ill-effects.
For the same reason, regular "performance checkups" are also a good idea. Stress in a manager's life changes with every change in reporting relationships, every change in the business environment, and every change in one's personal life. These changes can cause professional effectiveness to decline.
You've seen it before: a promising, talented manager is eager to make the step into an executive position, and you are looking forward to the fulfillment of the promise that such a gifted employee presents. However, after the promotion, he seems to change. He becomes less productive, leaving you to wonder what happened.
Executive coaching can be the answer to a struggling manager or executive's difficulty. Dr. Kurt Helm is a licensed and certified psychologist with over 35 years of experience in working with managers and executives in companies and organization of all kinds. He has extensive experience in focused professional development coaching: identifying barriers to success, working with the individual to develop strategies to overcome those barriers, and maintaining a productive coaching relationship over the period of time that it takes to turn the executive's performance around.
Just as a regular physical checkup may identify small problems before the become big ones, identifying sources of stress or change that disrupt performance effectiveness creates the opportunity to help the individual develop effective long-term skills and maintain high productivity.
