Danielle Graves

Welcome to another episode of The RVA Small Business Show with your host Cory Mosley. In today’s segment, we are joined by Danielle Graves, known socially as “Danielle The Coach,” Founder & CEO of The Aramint Group.

The Aramint Groups goal is to support your organization in developing world-class, transformational leaders that attract and retain top talent; foster inclusive work environments; and inspire high-performing workforce.

What I know to be true is that mindset can either be the catalyst or the saboteur to the success that you desire in your business and in your personal life too. -Danielle Graves

Decoding the Magic of Executive Coaching

As a leader, it’s easy to get lost in the day-to-day operations and lose sight of the bigger picture. Danielle explains that executive coaches can help leaders gain self-awareness and accountability, two vital components in leading a successful business. Coaches help leaders identify what they don’t know about themselves, challenge their self-perceptions, and highlight areas for growth and development.

 The Value of a Personal Board of Directors

Danielle introduced an interesting concept during the interview – the personal board of directors. This group consists of mentors and individuals whose opinions you value and consider when making important decisions. Adding a therapist and a performance coach to this board can significantly enhance your personal and professional growth.

Are You Coachable?

Not everyone is cut out for coaching. If you constantly find fault in others and struggle to take ownership of your actions, coaching may not be the best path forward for you. On the other hand, if you are open to self-assessment and taking responsibility for your actions, coaching could be a game-changer for your leadership journey.

The ROI of Executive Coaching

Measuring the return on investment for executive coaching can be tricky as most returns are intangible. However, improvements in productivity, accomplishment of personal and professional goals, better time management, and increased self-awareness are all indicators of a successful coaching process.

Executive Coaching: A Commitment to Self-Improvement

If you’ve been asking yourself questions like “How can I be better?”, “How can I improve?”, or “How can I balance my personal life and business?”, then you might need an executive coach. An executive coach can help you delegate tasks, prioritize self-care and downtime, and continually progress towards your goals.
