What is Executive Coaching?
Executive Coaching is an experiential development process that builds capability to achieve short and long term goals. It is conducted through one on one or group interactions. It is driven by data gathered with respect and trust often from multiple sources within and outside the organisation. The coach and executive work together to achieve maximum personal and organisational impact.
Executive Coaches do not provide advice for you or your organisation. They provide objective observation and reflection of your situation so you can more clearly see your options and strategies going forward. Executive Coaches are passionate and positive people who more concerned with your dreams than your nightmares. The workplace often provides us with great stress and performance fears perfect for Executive coaching, however there are also some issues best dealt with by counsellors or therapists.
Today, having a coach means you are a valuable member of your organisation , an identified future leader and definitely the Executive of tomorrow.
