Formulate, articulate, communicate, cajole, and inspire individuals and teams to collaborate to create a future that becomes your legacy.

Last week I talked about the first (i.e., it is lonely at the top) of several reasons why CEO's need a coach and I introduced Eric Schmidt, the CEO of Google, who in a powerful video excerpt talked about why he works with a coach. It is my experience and, in fact, there are ample research studies that now exist that support my premise that most CEO's "in their head's" want to work with a coach, however, when it comes to actually "executing the decision", most decide not to work with a coach due to the negative stigma attached. In other words, most CEO's frankly are concerned that their boards and key stakeholders will see it as a sign of weakness that they are in fact working with a coach.

The single most critical leadership skill in growing companies is delegation. The absence of this skill in the CEO or at the executive team level causes more companies to get “stuck” than any other behavior. In a startup, being a hands-on executive is a useful characteristic, but once the number of people in a company grows, organizational complexity grows too. In order to take your company to the next level of growth, you must become a skillful delegator.

You are a CEO or a business unit leader. Ultimately your success depends upon the breadth and depth of leadership you are able to grow amongst your teams. Of course you want to do this. If it’s not innate nature, then by now you have probably been subjected to countless “gurus” who have cajoled and persuaded you and your organization to adopt nurturing your subordinates and transforming your organization.
