“I knew I was well able to do the job. But I know that every hour I spent focusing on what was important with my coach during those sessions saved me about ten hours of hassle during the following week. I needed that practical support because the one thing that is constant in our sector is change itself.”
CEO’s are thought to have all the answers. You know that is not always the case. There are days when you possibly don’t even have the right questions.
- Do you consider yourself an ordinary person, but want to deliver extraordinary results for your organisation?
- Do you recognise the phrases “Lonely Place” or “Emotional Isolation” or “Lack of clarity”?
- Are you there now?
A high proportion of the CEO’s whom we work with talk about their role in such a manner. They are accountable to their board of directors. They want to deliver against expectations. They are keen to develop their potential. They want to drive the business and the senior team to higher levels of performance. They know what needs to be done. However, there are days when they don’t feel in control; days when they wish they were better equipped for the job.
You can’t browse Amazon for a book called “CEO for Dummies”. You are the person who is writing the script for the first time. This is your particular sector, your mix of staff, your individual challenges, your finite resources, your competitive environment, your financial resources, your customer issues and your product and service as currently defined. (Oops, we nearly forgot the economy) Your dreams, plans, fears, strategies, and visions are as unique as everyone else’s.
Developing your potential as a CEO level through Amaze offers a “safe & effective space” where you get to proofread your drafts, improve your skills, make mistakes, generate a bigger pool of options and ensure the plot develops so that your book becomes a ‘best seller’.
