Unsure if coaching is for you? Ask these 3 CEOs
A recent Stanford Business School survey of senior executives showed that 100% of CEO’s and nearly that number of presidents of companies wanted to have a personal coach. Yet, only 33% were actually being coached.
The reason for the difference? Most CEO’s interviewed said they didn’t want remedial business coaching. They didn’t need someone telling them how to balance a budget. What they needed and wanted was someone to help them with their personal skills and issues in life. They also wanted their coaching to be confidential. The primary coaching subjects desired amongst this group are:
- Long term visioning and planning
- Goal setting for themselves, their employees and departments within their company
- The skills needed to motivate others
- Managing their fears
- Taking Risks for the company and themselves
- Dealing with Change
- Perseverance through difficult times
- Setting Priorities for the company and themselves
- Passing on their knowledge
- Balance of work and home life
- Empathy including the ability to laugh, cry, and give more
- Personal Self-actualization
- Post-career options
Having a plan gives clarity about what you want to do with your retirement years. Common coaching wisdom is that those who are trying to follow a plan do so at a much higher success rate when someone else holds them accountable for taking the actions outlined in the plan.
Most people have a financial plan for retirement. Most do not have a non-financial plan. So you have enough money to retire, but what will you do with it? How will you spend your days? Can you picture yourself going from your fast paced professional life to a screeching halt to tend roses in your garden? How many days will it take for you to be bored? Is making a difference now more important than making more money?
