Coaching high velocity leaders – either startup founders or leaders operating inside of fast-growing companies – brings unique challenges. Leaders in these environments have to adapt very quickly in a context of imperfect information and fast moving scenarios. They are (either consciously or unconsciously) managing their own emotions and the nerves of their executives and employees.
In light of this, coaches – who provide both safe space to think through ideas and emotions as well as constructive challenges – need to be able to adapt their style to leaders in these situations. And prepare for your own personal growth.
