Executive Business Coaching with Coach Ed McDonough

Bringing Balance Back Into Business and Your Life!

Winning in today’s fast-paced, pressure-filled and highly competitive business world is increasingly more difficult than ever before because Business No Longer Has Clear Boundaries.

Stress, fatigue and being overwhelmed have become the normal way of life for business owners and corporate professionals everywhere. The cause: Nondescript and undefined work boundaries.

Twenty years ago it was different, but today with the advent of email and portable information devices, our capacity to work 24-7 is only limited by exhaustion. The edges have become blurred and the amount of information we are expected to
process daily has increased by an order of magnitude.

The Old Models and Habits are Insufficient

If you’re like most, you have probably found you are unable to accommodate the speed, complexity and changing priorities in your current mode of operation.

The problem is, your ability to be successful, in control and have time to play and relax in this day and age, require new world-class tools and methods to help you focus your energy strategically and tactically without letting anything fall through the cracks.

The old thought is that extraordinary business owners and executives will take full advantage of talent, time, and resources they have to run their business.

Until now, it has been the philosophy that an excellent business leader possessed the ability to clearly define the organization’s vision and communicate it in a way that inspires every team member’s commitment and action.

The common belief is that an top business leader will focus on developing them self, along with the others on their team, to expand the organization’s perspectives and competencies.

The fact is, today’s business owners and executives just don’t have the time.

Personal Systems Outweigh Business Systems 10 to 1

In this day an age, it’s personal systems, not business systems, that make the difference for the business owner and executive.

A business is the reflection of the owner and the top executives. When they show signs of weakness, disorganization, imbalance, harsh communication, physical weariness and burnout, the business ultimately suffers.

Regardless of the strength on the business systems which may be in place, it’s the human component that makes or breaks a business every time. It is the reflection of the owner and the top executives which determines success.

Why I Enjoy Working With Top Leaders…

Do you think this sounds too good to be true?

Good, I firmly believe skepticism is healthy. Many times it takes us seeing what we don’t want to realize exactly what it is that we do want.

So, why do I enjoy working with top leaders so much?

Well, it wasn’t all that long ago that I was one.

But, I have to admit to you that I was foolish. I once thought working 60 to 70 hours a week was a good thing. Like many, I believed it was acceptable to put your job first; above and beyond everything else in your life.

I was fooled into thinking it would all pay off in the end. Instead what happened is my relationship with my wife, family and friends became strained, I gained 30 pounds, my stress level went off the charts and my health was starting to
deteriorate at a rapid pace.

To sum it up, my overall quality of life was quickly approaching zero and I knew if I didn’t make a change I would be in jeopardy of losing everything that was precious to me.

Fast forward six years and you’ll find me much happier running my own business. The funny thing is, I was once again working long hard hours. But, it didn’t seem to matter because it was “for me” and that somehow made it OK.

In reality, it wasn’t OK. And, once more, it was starting to take a toll on me, my wife, my family and my health. Business as good, the profits were rolling in, but I for a second time I found myself completely out of balance.

Having experienced being stuck between the proverbial work-life balance “rock and a hard place” in the corporate world and as a successful business owner, is what drove me to became a certified life and business coach.

In 2005, at age 47, I went on a quest to bring more happiness into my life and the lives of those around me. What I discovered is my inner passion for helping people find greater balance, and transform their life, while simultaneously realizing their
true potential.

It’s a gift I’ve been given which I greatly appreciate. I am honored to have worked with business owners and corporate professionals throughout North America and I look forward to helping many more, including you.
