Q: What are the justifications for hiring external coaches for our high-performing leaders? On the surface, it usually appears that hiring external coaches for poor performers seem more justifiable than for high performers.
A: But this is all changing fast. Coaches are adept in working with high performers, raising them to the next level for breakthroughs. This is why great sportsmen like Tiger Woods and the Williams sisters are still depending on coaches. Perhaps, another important consideration is whether your people are sufficiently qualified and competent enough to do the job.
