Executive coaching motivates CEOs to perform 

An increasing number of executives are consulting coaches and mentors in order to improve their management skills and to help them achieve professional goals. A coach or mentor acts in a similar way that a sporting coach does to motivate an athlete to continue training and to perform at the top of their game. This is a relationship focused upon growth — it is a developmental process.

Similarly, a relationship of guidance, constructive criticism and support from a coach/mentor to an executive will help improve professional performance.

However, 50% say Executive Coaching does not grasp the context or strategy of their business

Executive coaching has a rather narrow focus when it comes to coaching CEOs. A whopping 42% of individuals who received executive coaching said that it did not provide a structured learning framework. 50% also said that coaches were not effective in understanding the context and/or strategy of their business.

The CEO Peer Group model provides access to more expertise than one executive coach

Coaching in isolation is very different from the CEO Peer combination of monthly group meetings, one-on-one sessions with your group leader, and workshops run by industry expert speakers. The CEO model will allow for a much wider range of issues to be addressed and offers a support network much greater than executive coaching on its own can provide. The knowledge and experience of group members is diverse and varied—combined, they have far more expertise than one coach, (who may or may not have experience in your field) could possibly possess.
