The old adage is, ‘it’s lonely at the top’ and it is a common concern for CEO’s and business leaders who often don’t have a trusted advisor they can really talk to. Many of these leaders feel as though they are “going it alone” even as they know their companies or the board of the company would support enhancement efforts tied to increasing the success of the company.

Yet, self-aware executives know that ‘they don’t have all of the answers’ and work to surround themselves with partners, peers and mentors who they can learn from and use as a sounding board for talking through issues, ideas and solutions.
