It’s Lonesome at the Peak of Organizations; Executives profit from Coaching

Today’s most successful companies recognize the value that comes with training talent at all levels.  Good development coaching for leadership is always custom tailored to enhance performance and deliver a competitive edge for the organization.

Among top talent in executive offices, many leaders have proven themselves to be knowledgeable.  That’s a given.  The difference between success and failure as a leader often comes down to soft skills, those traits that aren’t found on a resume.  Based on an anonymous survey, Harvard Business Review  notes that 68% of surveyed CEO’s did not feel adequately prepared for their position, largely due to poor preparation of interpersonal skills.

One of our CEO’s we work with on a coaching project asked us recently why companies are so reluctant to provide more people in their organizations coaching.  He said that the value for him has made him into the person he is today.  He said he wished he had been offered this kind of coaching years ago.  He felt like his productivity and value to the organization would have been enhanced far beyond the investment for a good coach.
