Board Level Coaching
The often mentioned saying “Being a Board level leader can be a lonely place”, perhaps only became true because it has been repeated so many times. Perhaps mostly by external consultants to Board level executives they wish to sign up as clients. Personally, being a Board level leader can be the complete opposite. And so it should be!
The “lonely” aspect tends to occur when a Board Level executive perceives or indeed encounters isolation; a fear of making a specific decision; speaking up about a specific subject; worrying about how to present a message (or performance results) to an audience deemed unreceptive or potentially hostile.
Being a Board Level executive brings with it an immense professional, legal and ethical responsibility.
Imagine for a moment. You are facing the challenge of change.
A changing economy, a changing regulatory landscape, a changing marketplace, a changing top team. Change is constant. And who can you speak with about the concerns you have? The potentially brilliant ideas you may generate? Who do you trust enough to listen to you to truly understand, rather than simply to respond? Who do you trust enough to invite their feedback, and s/he understands that they can actually disagree with you? You the boss!
Feedback to Board Level executives is often tempered. Speaking truth to power can be a terrifying experience for many employees. Even when you have invited candid feedback.
With Scott Watson as your Coach, you benefit from and enjoy unfiltered, independent, expert feedback. You won’t get a ‘Yes Man’ that strokes your ego by agreeing for the sake of agreeing. If this is the kind of Coach you may enjoy collaborating with, you are welcome to get in touch.
