Feeling Lonely at the Top? Peer Coaching Might Be for You

So you’ve worked hard and made it to the top—you’re in a senior leadership top management position at your organization. You’re a proven leader, and you get results. The only problem is, now that you’re at the top, there’s no one to go to when you need help.

Senior leaders are often hesitant to show vulnerability or uncertainty. No one wants to risk losing the confidence or respect of those they lead or of their organization’s stakeholders. This can create an unhealthy situation that puts undue stress and pressure on you. Everyone needs a sounding board, and even the best leaders make mistakes. We all need honest, constructive feedback.

This is where peer coaching can make a world of difference. At my ExecuLink peer coaching group, you’ll have access to a confidential brain trust of successful executives from non-competing businesses. Members gather monthly from 8 to 11am at a member location to offer support and feedback that enables peers to make progress on the issues, challenges and opportunities most important to them.

The best part is that you don’t have to be a client to join. Simply fill out an application form today and I will contact you shortly.

With the end of 2018 upon us, now is a great time to start thinking about your goals for the new year. If you’re looking for an opportunity to both mentor others and receive the support you need to grow as a leader, ExecuLink could be the right solution for you.

Peer coaching groups offer the following benefits:

  • They can help you improve the performance of your business
  • They allow you to obtain accurate information about benchmarks and best practices
  • They provide a safe, confidential environment for growth and learning
  • They offer an opportunity to step out of your organization and reflect on challenges and obstacles to success
  • They help you to make personal connections that will enrich your professional and personal life
  • They expose you to new ideas and strategies
  • They allow you to benefit from the successes and failures of others
  • They give you honest feedback without any conflicts of interest

Research also suggests that there are tangible benefits to participating in peer coaching. According to Chief Executive Group, organizations whose senior leaders participate in peer coaching groups grow at a 200% faster rate than those who do not. Members of peer coaching groups also saw twice the profits of their non-participating counterparts in 2013.

In addition to these benefits, peer coaching groups also allow you to give back by sharing your knowledge and wisdom with others. There is nothing more rewarding than knowing you’ve helped someone else become the best leader they can be.
