Why Executive/Business Coaching Matters:
An executive coach can help you improve your leadership skills, develop new strategies for achieving your goals, and overcome any challenges that are preventing you from reaching your full potential. Executive coaches also provide a sounding board for ideas, help you to stay accountable, and can provide an outside perspective on issues you may be facing.
Additionally, coaching can help you to identify and develop your strengths, while also working on any areas that may be holding you back. Ultimately, an executive coach can help you become a more effective leader and achieve greater success in your career.
Executive Coaching (EC) facilitates an executive’s personal and professional development, learning and performance. Clients can expect a non-directive guide focusing on the process rather than receiving advice (or instruction) to achieve their goals and the desired outcomes.
EC occurs within an organisational context where partners are involved, including the coach and the individual. The primary relationship is, of course, between coach and individual. However, the organisation also has a stake in the relationship. This triangular relationship must be carefully managed by clearly establishing the roles and responsibilities of each party.
EC is more than a life-coaching conversation. It requires a skilled coach with the capabilities, skills, breadth and depth of experience, methodology and tools based on ‘scientifically proved’ practices to achieve desired results. The process and the techniques used in executive coaching incorporate a wide range of research-based disciplines giving it a ﬁrm academic background.
EC is the discipline of a well-executed systematic coaching process that offers organisations and leaders concrete, practical and relevant assistance for real-time interventions and development and establishes best future practices.
EC facilitates the growth of leadership and teams to gain deeper self-awareness, create and clarify goals, achieve personal development objectives, and develop corporate cultures for favourable outcomes.
EC is not a substitute for psychotherapy. Clients are considered to be psychologically whole and can beneﬁt from the process.
