Executives face more pressure than ever. The competition has never been tougher. Markets, technologies, workforces and legal environments are changing at an unprecedented rate.
Making sound decisions is the trademark of the successful executive. A history of excellent decisions is the base for a successful career. It is also well understood that one bad decision can be very damaging. Successful CEOs and executives also know sometimes it is useful to bounce ideas off someone they can trust and who can help with perspective. It is lonely at the top, and not possible to share all thoughts or possibilities with others in the company.
Executive coaches are now commonplace in organizations because CEOs recognize that the demands and stress of the job require it. Longevity and success may depend on a dynamic and productive partnership with a coach.
