1. What is executive coaching?

Coaching provides a powerful force to help executives clearly examine their values, skills, mission, personal impact, and relationships. Executive coaching is designed to accelerate career growth and to improve effectiveness at work and is conducted in a one-to-one confidential professional relationship. Executive coaching is provided for developmental reasons, and for situational reasons. Reasons like new boss, new role, new geography, and new expectation. The overarching goal is to produce individual performance results that are both observable and measurable, and that are commensurate with the business and professional requirements of the coaching participant.

Coaching involves these two key components:

a) Evaluating the individual’s current performance or behavior circumstance
b) Creating and acting on an action plan for development, change, and improvement

2. Why would an executive need or want an executive coach?

• Expert advice
• Another voice
• A confidential safe place to work difficult problems or forge through new territory

It could be that there are specific issues that need to be addressed, or it could be that you simply need someone to challenge them, be a sounding board, or an impartial collaborator.

3. What does an executive coach do?

An executive coach utilizes their knowledge and skill to improve the performance of their client. The role of an executive coach is to help a client journey from where they are to where they want to be. As an example, think of a football coach.
