Coronavirus and virtual coaching

Unbelievable. In a span of a few weeks, the world has changed. The top priority for everyone is to stay healthy. That means taking new precautions, like washing hands, using disinfecting wipes and keeping a safe distance from others. Business owners are rethinking everything. For many, that includes coronavirus and virtual coaching. Whether you’re in Cincinnati or anywhere in America, the business world may slow down, but it will not stop. Which means now could be the right time to begin working with an executive coach.

Get ready

The crisis will impact your business, your employees, your friends, your family…everything. Get ahead of the curve now. Limit meetings to small groups and stay safely apart. Shift employees to work virtually. Call your key customers and suppliers on the phone and have a conversation. Solidify relationships.

For some, this is a good time to start executive coaching. There are areas you—or key members of your executive team—need to work on. Areas you can develop. New tricks to learn and bad habits to break. Make the investment now so you can hit the gas pedal later.

Virtual executive coaching

I’ve been doing virtual coaching for years. Prior to this month, 40% of my coaching was virtual. That’s because I work with clients all over America, not just my hometown of Cincinnati. And while face-to-face is great, it isn’t always convenient.

As of today, all my executive coaching now is virtual. That’s for my safety and for my clients.

Luckily, I’ve figured out how to make virtual coaching work. I hold each session on a video call on our laptops. It’s better to see the other person. And I take all the notes, then send a recap afterwards. In a pinch, we’ll talk on the phone.

I’ve been one of America’s top executive coaches for 18 years. I’ve successfully coached thousands of CEOs, Presidents and other key executives. If this is a good time for you to up your game, give me a call. Coronavirus and virtual coaching. That wasn’t the headline I had in mind a month ago. But it’s the right thing to do now. If you are in Cincinnati—or anywhere in America—let me know if I can help.
