EGD 028: Every CEO Needs a Coach with Laurent Notin
Laurent Notin is an entrepreneur and business coach, who just recently moved to Finland. I was introduced to him during the summer of 2019 and we have been chatting pretty much every week after that.
We discuss tactical topics, philosophical topics, everything that goes into leadership, company culture, values and taking care of yourself. Now we’ll explore why Laurent and I both believe that gaming CEOs should all participate in business coaching.
Topics that we cover in this podcast:
- What is Business Coaching and how it can benefit business owners and entrepreneurs?
- How do entrepreneurs realize that they need coaching?
- What does it take to run a company?
- Can you talk about the strategy-building process? What are the elements there?
- Around leadership, what are the things that matter once the company has a strategy in place?
