Exploring an executive coach
Hi Elpha Community! I'm currently working as the Head of Product at a two-person civic tech company (www.voca.vote), and we're at a bit of a crossroads. My coworker--the CEO and Founder--is looking to step back for a few months to take care of his newborn and would like to leave me in charge. I've been working with him and the company for a year and a half now and am excited about taking the reins, but I am also feeling a fair amount of trepidation about stepping into this role without adequate support. We've discussed the possibility of working with an executive coach to provide some guidance, particularly around the development of our business model, but neither of us have any experience with this sort of relationship.Have any of you worked with an executive coach (or similar mentor) and, if so, how did you go about finding the right person? I'd love to work with another female entrepreneur, ideally with experience in the government/civic tech space.
