This is how a CEO benefits from coaching
1. A coach is able to debrief the CEO through a set of questions. This helps her to capture her own thoughts, ideas, feelings better
2. The coach helps in finding suitable options and thinking through them.
3. The coach provides a more detached yet empathetic listening
4 Very often a CEO gets mixed up on personal and professional issues, the coach helps her see through all that.
5. A CEO is truly alone in her organization, the coach can provide valuable company. For all this a coach must be a good leader, a good strategist, and must have holistic coaching experience.
