Executive Coaching for Your Congressional Leaders


Are your congressional leaders sufficiently humble, or ready for executive coaching? Two days ago, the American public went to the polls to voice their preferences for congressional leaders in their districts. As there was a great deal of dissatisfaction with the performance of many representatives in the House of Representatives and the Senate, numerous politicians were voted out of office.

With such poor ratings from the public, we are compelled to ask “Why did these congressional leaders fail to meet the expectations of those who depended on them? Did they lack political or business acumen? Did they lack leadership skills? Did they put their personal interests before the best interests of their constituents? Should executive coaching be provided for these important decision makers?”

Now, President Obama has extended an olive branch and invited leaders from both parties to discuss some major issues. So, this is where you come in. How would you rate the congressional leaders in your district in terms of the leadership characteristics* below on a scale of 1 to 10?

Optimal Thinking executive coaching empowers individuals to best understand issues, then employ best practices to achieve best solutions. If you believe that the congressional leaders  in your district would benefit from Optimal Thinking Executive Coaching, can you provide your reasons?  Would you invest in them?  If so, why?  If not, why not?  Please make your opinion count by adding your comments below.
