What is a CEO Coach-To-Scale Program?
Executive coaching is a one-on-one engagement between a business leader and an executive coach designed to help that leader perform more effectively.
Similar to hiring a private coach to help an athlete up their game, executive coaching takes leaders from good to great, helping a Founder/CEO scale their business past the next big growth hurdle or an experienced executive transform a challenging team.
Executive coaching is an investment in already successful executives and high-potential leaders to accelerate their skill and relationship development. It’s more about helping talented people use their leadership skills more effectively, not about taking corrective action. Furthermore, leaders today rely on their coach to act as an objective sounding board.
It’s Lonely at the Top for Business Owners
You are in the driver’s seat running your business, and most likely, this is a gratifying experience for you. But being the chief executive also comes at a price: you are eternally in the spotlight, critically observed by your stakeholders.
As a Founder/CEO, you face complex challenges and immense external pressures. You are highly visible, accountable, and bear enormous responsibility for achieving results. You undoubtedly have team members and people you can count on. However, do you feel:
- People tell you only what they think you want to hear and not what they really think?
- Stagnant in your development?
- You’re not getting enough candid and honest feedback from your team?
Being at the top can lead to feelings of isolation, and you may benefit from working with a trusted advisor who:
- Has been where you are, knee-deep in the day-to-day chaos of running a business
- Provides a different perspective and helps you gain new insights
- Helps you to enhance self-awareness
- Acts as your sounding board and brawling partner in challenging business situations and tells you what no one else dares to tell you
What Should You Expect From CEO Coaching?
Executive coaching for top-level leaders can help sharpen your focus on what matters most so that you can deliver better results with your existing resources and gain more work-life balance. Coaches play several roles. During an engagement, coaches can serve as a sounding board, a mirror, an accountability partner, and a confidant.
Working with the right leadership coach — someone who is savvy about relationships, messaging, and how to manage under pressure — brings substantial value. CEO coaches are trusted partners with the business acumen to help Founders, CEOs, or other C-level executives with a game plan to achieve results, balance short- and long-term goals and priorities, and shed light on new possibilities to help scale their company.
