WHAT IS EXECUTIVE COACHING?

Executive coaching is a formal engagement in which a qualified coach works with an organizational leader in a series of dynamic, confidential sessions designed to establish and achieve clear goals that will result in improved managerial performance. The relationship between a manager and a coach is different from other kinds of professional relationships. For example, a coaching relationship focuses on enhancing performance while a mentoring relationship usually has broader objectives. An executive coach is more involved in execution and outcome assessment than the typical consultant. A coach isn't an authority figure. 

Coaching is about individual people achieving their full potential.

Specifically, Executive Coaching is a facilitative one-to-one relationship between a professional coach and a key contributor who has a powerful position in the organization. The coaching is contracted for the benefit of a client who is accountable for highly complex decisions with wide scope of impact on the organization and industry as a whole. The focus of the coaching is usually around organizational performance or development, but it may also serve a personal component as well.

Coaching refers to the managerial activity of creating, by communication only, the climate, environment, and context that empowers individuals and teams to generate results.

Coaching captures the essence of the art of management in a way which enables people to shift their thinking from a traditional paradigm of control and order to a paradigm designed for empowering and enabling people in action. Coaching is a means of creating true partnerships, not only between managers and employees, but also between all interdependent work relations in an organization. Coaching relationships can accomplish more than could have been imagined from within the constraints of the traditional paradigm.
