Mining the The “Talent Pool” – Leaving a Legacy

Often coaching involves leading a client to act on something that they already know. In principle executives know that mentoring their team is a good thing. One of the most far reaching attributes of “leadership” is the ability to develop leaders. This is supported by stats from a  Stanford University/The Miles Group survey released this month, which asked 200 CEOs, board directors, and other senior executives questions about how they receive and view leadership advice. The top two areas board directors say their CEOs need to work on are “mentoring skills/developing internal talent” and “sharing leadership/delegation skills.”
