Two-thirds of executives have not received any outside advice on their leadership skills, and yet almost all would be receptive to suggestions from a coach (according to a survey by Stanford University and The Miles Group that asked 200 CEOs, board directors, and other senior executives about how they receive and view leadership advice). When asked about the survey results by the Harvard Business Review, the authors said they “were very surprised to learn the low percentage of CEOs who have coaches. The key takeaway for CEOs and boards is that seeking out a coach or advisor is not a sign of a fundamental problem or weakness, but instead a key attribute of being a superior leader. For boards and other stakeholders, they should understand that it could help make the difference between a good organization and a visionary one.”
