The CEO’s 7 Laws of Leadership: 6. FIND A TRUSTED GUIDE

May 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Successful leaders view a coach or mentor as a critical component to leadership excellence. They value a trusted guide who challenges their assumptions, identifies their blind spots and holds them accountable. The most effective coaches and mentors approach the CEO as a whole person, not just the leader in the corner office. Leaders who take a comprehensive approach to development that includes feedback from trusted peers, effective mentoring and insights from subject-matter experts continually outperform their competitors.

TIP: There’s a significant advantage in finding a mentor or coach who has a track record of success in the CEO role. They understand the challenges of this position and possess the business acumen. A mentor who knows
your market offers an added bonus.

Mentors and coaches have a variety of tools to help leaders excel. This exercise from Vistage Chair Philip Liebman helps CEOs tune in to their purpose, develop a habit of positive thinking and inspire their organizations.
In a journal, ask and answer the following three questions:

1. What have I observed myself doing that had a positive impact on someone I encountered today?

2. What have I observed someone else doing today that had a positive impact on someone they encountered?

3. What have I heard or read about — but not directly observed — that demonstrated someone doing something positive for another person?

In one year, the CEO captures 1,095 observations about “things that
are inherently good,” says Liebman. “This reinforces the belief that this
work is both necessary and possible, and fosters conscientiousness.
Leaders who see there is something valuable and something good to
work toward are more likely to perform to their potential.”
