As a CEO, why should you consider a CEO Coach?
Every great athlete has a coach. Every great CEO has a coach; you just don’t know about them. I had a CEO Coach for 17 years. Why do people at the top of their game have coaches? Because a coach will enable you to perform at your highest level and achieve what you never thought possible.
If you want to perform at your highest level in any area, a coach will help you get there. To become better, you need someone holding you accountable, someone who is asking you to take on the very things that will help you perform. Sometimes those are the things you don’t want to do. A coach will get you to do them.
Over half of all CEOs are fired. You will encounter challenges and setbacks. If you have a board of directors, they may determine you are the reason the company isn’t performing. A CEO coach will significantly improve your odds of success.
CEOs have no one to talk to. They can’t share their most significant concerns with their management team — they are supposed to be motivating them. You can’t talk to your board about your fears – the board wants an assertive and confident leader at the helm.
Great coaches help you work through the biggest challenges in your darkest hours. The right CEO coach will give you the answer when you need to know what to do.
A great coach will make any CEO more successful. But it’s not only about being successful; it’s about being happy while achieving success. The best coach will help you enjoy the journey.
