Benefits Of Executive Coaching For CEOs
All exceptional performers have a coach to help them achieve their best and business executives, including a CEO, are no exception. Following are some benefits of executive coaching for CEOs:
• A coach points out any blind spots a CEO may have; it is difficult to assess oneself accurately and a disinterested opinion can be invaluable when identifying potential issues.
• An executive coach will ask pertinent, sometimes difficult questions, that others might not have the authority or courage to ask. The answers to these questions can lead to new opportunities for growth.
• Managing conflict is an essential part of being a CEO. A coach can help an executive with techniques for making objective assessments in a conflict and on methods for resolving it.
• The coach can act as an adviser about issues that a CEO might not be able to have with his executive team or employees and can offer sensitive, honest and objective advice when needed.
