CEOs and Senior Executives
CEOs and Senior Executives come to us because they think they can do better. Sometimes they know what it is that’s bothering them, they just can’t talk about it. Sometimes, they simply have no idea, they just have a feeling in their gut that something is not quite right. If they could only figure it out, life would get a lot easier.
The loneliness of the CEO is well known. How can you be lonely when you are surrounded by people? CEOs know the answer to that one! For senior executives the same can be true. No wonder then that stress builds up over time, resulting in more and more people admitting that they feel depressed. Every day feels like it’s overcast and rainy.
In a stressed state, feelings of anxiety, quick temperedness, and even illness are not far behind.
Through no fault of their own, top people perform at a much lower level than their experience and expertise would suggest.
Conventional leadership coaching, training and development programmes simply do not get to the depth required to deal with the real root causes.
While loneliness is the number one affliction of CEOs, the number one factor limiting the performance of professionally qualified, competent senior people is a lack of confidence. It is a fact that the most thorough and conscientious doubt themselves the most.
This lack of confidence leads to underperformance day to day and underachievement over time. The stress erodes them, their careers and their relationships. The confident executive achieves more with less effort than his or her less confident colleagues. The confident executive experiences less stress and is, therefore, more resilient. He or she can take on more, whilst paying less of a personal price.
Simply put, the confident ‘A’ player has more sustainable capacity to get things done and to enjoy life along the way.
The transformation required is actually much quicker and easier than you might think, provided you go deep enough to address the root causes of the problems.
