Why engage a Senior Coach?
Research has shown that “top executives who feel that they can handle it all by themselves are more likely to burn out, make poor decisions or make no decisions—potentially resulting in significant loss of opportunities, human resources and financial resources.” **
Leaders often confuse coaching with therapy or counselling and perceive it as remedial rather than developmental. Consequently, leaders chose to ‘go it alone’ in what can be one of the loneliest roles in a company. They cope with the challenges of the role in different ways. Some develop a healthy self-doubt whereas others experience fears.
The ‘overwhelmed employee’ is not a new phenomenon but in recent years there has been a shift from health to wellbeing. The mental health of senior professionals is now seen as a strategic priority.
