Lonely at the Top?

Executives at the Top


A common opinion is that CEO's have it all - power, salary, advantages, prestige and influence - to mention a few. The truth is something different.

Most CEO's face genuine troubles, including a recurrent feeling of loneliness, which in itself can hinder full performance. This feeling of isolation is not limited to CEOs, it affects all kinds of organisational leaders. CEO's and other top leaders owe it to themselves and their organisations to make sure the impression of isolation does not impact their leadership too much.

It does not necessarily have to be "lonely at the top".

Working with an executive coach, guides senior managers to lead and manage themselves more effectively in relation to their potential, their resources, their challenges and their contexts. The process invariably involves growth and changes, whether that is in perspective, attitude or behaviour. It is a powerful opportunity to further professional and personal development, and is an excellent source of motivation.

An executive coach listens to a leader's challenging experiences and help see what is really going on, during interactions at work and in private. When sharing a story, the CEO gets constructive, empathic feedback - which is rare at work. To improve the situation, the leader is given impactful exercises.
