CEO Coaching: Is an investment in CEO coaching really worth the cost?
Good question. Here’s another:
Is the presence of a real leader in your organisation worth it to your organisation?
The value of an authentic leader to a business cannot be overestimated. True leaders bring the potential of transforming workforces into collaborative, fully-engaged, high performance teams. As such, an executive coach capable of developing CEOs (as well as other managers and executives) into authentic leaders may well be worth exploring.
As you investigate the pros & cons of CEO coaching, here are a few other strong factors to consider:
All High Performers Have Coaches
Virtually everyone who has attained the heights of high performance, in every field that can be imagined, has had a coach.
Tiger Woods has had numerous coaches, and trains with one today. Michael Jordan had a coach. Tim Cook has been coached. Surfing legend Kelly Slater has several coaches – including a coach for yoga alone.
It’s no different in business and that is what CEO coaching will do for you: Set you apart from the rest of the pack, in the way that the achievers above have set themselves apart from their respective packs.
High performers and champions understand that no one realises their full potential through just their own individual efforts. While this may seem like common sense, our culture has also bequeathed upon us stories of bootstraps, determination, grit and rags-to-riches. While effort, practice, and disciplined application are central to our journey… the myth of the lone man or woman ascending to greatness may just be that: a myth.
At some point, every individual achieves the maximum level of development possible according to their level of awareness. At this time, working with a coach or mentor is key toward identifying those aspects of ourselves that we don’t know we don’t know.
And that’s where we can help, through our CEO Coaching & Mentoring Programme.
