1) What is it?
Executive coaches are typically hired to teach newly promoted managers/executives on how to successfully become the best leader possible. These coaches focus on many skills required from managers/executives including evaluating performance, setting team goals, dealing with conflict and motivating teams.
2) How is it done?
Coaching focuses on what the client wants and utilizes a process through the one-on-one coaching sessions to enable the client to self-discover, learn and determine their own answers. It is the client who determines the goals and commits to their goal, while allowing the coach to assist them throughout the process and hold them accountable. Most executive coaches use the following steps as a backbone to the coaching process:
3) Who does it?
Executive coaches can range from individuals with a Ph.D. in clinical psychology or industrial organizational psychology or someone with a bachelor’s degree in business management and everything in between. Due to these diverse backgrounds many coaches tend to focus on a certain aspect of coaching such as improving productivity, relationship building, or enhancing job satisfaction. This is why it is very important for individuals looking for an executive coach to figure out what it is they wish to improve on and to find a coach best suited to satisfy their needs.
