Executive coaching is a professional relationship between a trained coach and a client with the goal to enhance the client’s leadership or management performance and development.
An executive coach is a qualified professional that works with individuals to help them gain self-awareness, clarify goals, achieve their development objectives, unlock their potential, and act as a sounding board. Executive coaches ask questions to help an executive clarify and solve their own problems.
The ideal client for executive coaching is a business executive, senior manager or leader of an organization who has a passion to become a better leader.
The executive coaching process typically involves several stages, beginning with an assessment, goal setting, and development and planning and then progressing through the outlined development plan with check-ins. The process usually lasts until the client has accomplished their goals.
The best way to prepare for executive coaching is to have an open mind to new perspectives. A coach will challenge you to think in new, creative ways that will help you grow as an individual.
