Many executives are dealing with isolation and loneliness as they find themselves stuck with the limited options of people or places they can turn to for advice. This issue is worse for regional directors who do not have the same privilege as their counterparts working in their home country. The best option is to seek reciprocal help in overcoming executive loneliness.

If the situation only impacted executives as individuals, it may be tempting to ignore it, but there is growing evidence that being part of an effective professional network has a significant positive impact on the businesses they head up, particularly if they are in a growth phase or are expanding into new markets.
