Bloomberg put out a brief, light article about why CEOs should consider using executive coaches.  The main premise is based upon a (very good) comparison to how elite athletes use coaches.  The piece adds that great althletic coaches often aren’t formerly stellar athletes themselves, and that the same concept applies to the executive coach: a psychologist with a solid foundation in organization development, group dynamics and such but who hasn’t run a Fortune 500 company can still be of great benefit to CEOs and other senior leaders.
