Executive Coaching is a leadership development intervention, where individuals can work privately and individually with their coach to develop specific leadership competencies, prepare for change, or transition into a new role
The process of executive coaching facilitates an outcome/s, which is set by the coachee. Each executive coaching programme is unique to the individual being coached and the competencies they want to develop.
It is a confidential process and one that stretches and challenges the coachee, as they develop new skills and behaviours. It is also a process where in the moment feedback is given, based on what the coach sees, hears and observes. As Bill Gates has said “We all need people who give us feedback. That’s how we improve”. Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Google goes one step further when he suggests that “everybody needs a coach” because of the value to people of “seeing themselves as others see them”.
