In today’s world, leaders have to deal with a multitude of issues:
Either it is about continuous transformation combined with a significant pressure on meeting stakeholder expectations and/or skills required to lead an organisation are different to the skills acquired on the journey to the top.
Besides, organizations are getting flatter, and that in fact, limits time and opportunities to prepare for the challenges on the top. Personal and professional development with the help of external professional who has seen it, done it, been there can be very valuable.
These challenges are often assumed to be a personal burden for the leader. But engaging high-profile, independent external coaches can make a considerable difference and accelerate the learning process.
