It’s Lonely at the Top: CEOs Benefit From Executive Coaching

Written by Warren Averett on September 5, 2018

Lonely at the Top

It’s no surprise that top executives are talented, intelligent leaders. However, becoming a successful leader is much more than climbing the ladder based on natural talent. Success is also tied to soft skills—interpersonal skills that enable someone to interact effectively with those around him or her”. Based on a recent survey, Harvard Business Review highlights that 68 percent of surveyed CEOs felt underprepared for their position, and they primarily felt underprepared due to lack of development of interpersonal skills. Another 47 percent of CEOs said that developing their senior leadership team was surprisingly challenging.
