How CEOs can reduce stress and delegate better with coach Snezana Djuric
In a recent Leadership Insights discussion, Peter Esho spoke with Snezana Djuric about CEO coaching. They discussed two main points: handling stress and understanding delegation.
Stress is common for CEOs. Being at the top can be isolating, and this can increase stress. Peter Esho mentioned how big responsibilities can lead to more stress, affecting decisions and work.
Snezana talked about the importance of clarity. She said the first step to handle stress is to know its cause. Writing down concerns can help CEOs see and address them. This simple act can help leaders move from feeling stressed to feeling in control.
Delegation is also key. Snezana said that CEOs often think it's faster to do a task themselves than to give it to someone else. But this can slow things down in the long run. Delegation is about giving tasks to team members and letting them grow.
Peter agreed, saying that good delegation means trusting your team. Leaders should know that their way isn't the only way. Letting team members do tasks their way can lead to new solutions.
Snezana also spoke about the ongoing need for clarity in leadership. It's about knowing why you're doing something. Leaders should keep checking their goals and reasons. This helps them stay true to their original vision.
For new leaders or those feeling overwhelmed, Snezana's advice is to start small. Write down concerns, prioritise them, and decide on the next steps. Over time, these steps add up and lead to big changes.
In the end, the talk between Peter and Snezana gave a clear view of CEO coaching. With clarity and delegation, leaders can handle stress and work better. As Snezana said, it's about the journey, not just the destination.
