In the next week or so, I wanted to write about the need for CEO Coaching. I will identify seven concrete reasons why CEO’s need a coach. I begin with reason #1 below, “It’s Lonely at the Top”. But, first: An interesting study was just released by Stanford University/Miles Group that identifies the massive gap between CEO’s being receptive to coaching (i.e., 95%) and the percentage who actually receive coaching (i.e. less than 33%).

About a week ago our IT supplier sent an e-mail to everyone on my staff warning them about a computer virus. It certainly was not the first such notice we have gotten, but it was by far one of the scariest. The virus is called Crypto Locker and is a ransom ware virus. Once on your computer it encrypts your files and demands $100-$300, or more, in order to decrypt them. The payment is due in 100 hours. The hackers are literally holding businesses and individuals hostage

An unprecedented wave of staff turnover will rock most industries for the next 15 years. The retirement of CEOs, their direct reports and many highly skilled positions will create an unprecedented vacuum of human capital. As the economy improves and productivity improvement tapers off, robotics and sourcing strategies will hit their ceiling and human reinvestment will be required to fill the gaps. Regardless the size or ownership structure of American companies, most simply aren't ready.

We’d like to think that if we met someone who didn’t have a conscience, we would size up the situation quickly and accurately. If we were to encounter the corporate equivalent to the fictitious Hannibal Lecter, the evil psychiatrist Anthony Hopkins made famous in Silence of the Lambs, we believe that, like FBI agent Clarice Starling, we would not only assess him accurately, we would know what to do to overpower him. And we’d be wrong.

Leadership in business is not just the art of directing the motivated or motivating the confused or irresolute person.  It is about guiding the emotionally unstable to believe in themselves and tap into their unique insights.  A person’s real contribution is not driven by their ability to apply directives, but by offering valuable insights and a positive attitude.
