Every CEO Should Have an Executive Coach

If you have reached the top you may well wonder how you would get any benefit from Executive Coaching

 

 

Here are 3 reasons why Executive Coaching can enhance your performance as a CEO:

 

Independent Sounding Board

 

It can get lonely at the top. At the end of the day the buck stops with you. So it’s helpful to have someone from outside the company with whom you can review and share your ideas and plans. An Executive Coach has no vested interest in what is going on in the company and can therefore provide an independent challenge and sounding board. You can feel free to have an open discussion because confidentiality is a key part of every Executive Coaching contract.

 

When you are making plans it can be difficult to know if those you are working with have their own political agenda. This may mean that their input is designed to suit their agenda rather than that of the company. At a senior level it is entirely normal for people to have some sort of agenda either to build or defend their power and influence – this is human nature. An Executive Coach has no political agenda so you can be sure of an independent and non judgemental view on the topics that you discuss.

 

Unique Relationship

 

In surveys of our coaching clients they say that the relationship with their Executive Coach is unique outside their immediate family and friends. The Executive Coach is always committed to your success and will provide encouragement for you to achieve your objectives. In the business world CEOs find few people who offer this.

 

Personal Feedback

As a CEO how often do you get feedback on yourself? Your Executive Team may feel it is not appropriate to do this for a whole range of understandable reasons. However an Executive Coach will give you honest feedback on things like your leadership style and approach. This can provide you with development to enhance your business performance that is not available elsewhere.

 

As an Executive Coaching Company we find that our clients come to us for one or more of these 3 reasons. By investing in Executive Coaching you have the opportunity to enhance your business with a personal development expert who is independent, non judgemental and committed to your success. Why wouldn’t every CEO want that facility?
