The road to something worthwhile can be demanding, which is why having a leadership coach on your team makes a huge difference. Says the dean of coaching Sir John Whitmore, the impact comes from "unlocking people's potential to maximize their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them.**
Mark is the kind of leadership coach that Bill Gates describes this way:
I just want to sincerely thank you for your time and
effort in helping me see what I wanted, and how to get there.
