According to an Executive Coaching Survey released by Stanford Graduate School of Business in 2013, most CEOs express feeling “lonely at the top”. In fact, according to the report by Professor David F. Larcker and his associates, an overwhelming number of these men and women do not benefit from outside leadership advice – but nearly all of those surveyed would welcome it!
What is it about Corporate or Executive Coaching that is so attractive to business leaders?
The world of business is a highly competitive arena. And, like any great prize-fighter, those who accept the challenge of building and growing successful organizations know that the odds of winning increase when they seek out the best training and surround themselves with the best team.
It seems reasonable that those at the top should be given all the top tools available to help them take themselves and their company to where they want to be. Yet, many companies are not readily providing their chief executives and those in management with competent coaching, effective for helping to:
- Assess current behaviors within the workplace
- Develop long-term behavioral plans
- Gain understanding of leadership styles
- Utilize the valuable, individual assets of team members
- Influence and impact productivity
- Receive and benefit from feedback
- Build and lead a truly cohesive and competent team
If CEOs are willing to be coached – what should they look for in a Corporate Coach?
The single most untapped competitive advantage in business is teamwork. Without this advantage, businesses continue to fail.
The first thing you can do is approach your employer and ASK for Corporate Coaching. (Coaches are often described as the “secret power” behind a corporation’s increased productivity, sales, and customer satisfaction.)
The next thing you can do – and possibly the most rewarding – is to consider the benefits of putting all of your years of experience to work for you – becoming a Registered Corporate Coach yourself.
