It is lonely at the top, and it should be. Being the final decision maker in an organization, regardless of industry, public or private, carries a weight few can understand. Who you rely on as a sounding board is crucial and needed.
A Trusted Advisor must be safe. Conversations are not repeated. The Trusted Advisor is not one who tells you what to do. A Trusted Advisor is your ear and one who will ask you the hard and provocative questions you will not get from a staff member no matter how trusted they may be.
Col Boggs has been in the role of Trusted Advisor at sensitive levels in uniform and as a businessman. Being a Trusted Advisor requires an intimate relationship and an incredible ability to listen and question.
The objective of a Trusted Advisor relationship is to improve the condition of the client.
