What do CFOs do?

So what’s a CFO to do?  Many of us don’t have the resources to hire a personal coach, so do we have to forego the benefits of having a trusted advisor to guide us?
One solution is to find a coaching program that brings together several like-minded individuals under the guidance of one professional coach.  This approach allows individuals to not only reap the benefits of coaching at a lower cost than one-on-one coaching, but allows for the sharing of ideas among the participants as well.  In a sense, the participants become coaches for each other.
Do you have a personal coach?  If so, is it a one-on-one situation or a group setting?  What benefits have you seen from coaching? If you have been benefitted from coaching, then please leave your comments below.
