Executive Coaching for Senior Executives

Executive Coaching provides leaders with strategic assistance and personalized leadership learning. Executive coaching is a best practice and can benefit the newly appointed and seasoned senior executive.

Executive coaching is most effective when a senior executive:

  • Faces new challenges and the “old way” of approaching these challenges are no longer effective;
  • Needs to change their own behavior to enhance performance;
  • Is looking to change the behavior of a member of their team;
  • Has a clear focus areas for the coaching;
  • Could use an independent confidante and thought partner; and
  • Recognizes that honing leadership skills will lead to greater success.

Executive coaching is a one-on-one professional engagement which produces results that are observable and meaningful to both the senior executive and the organization. Executive coaching is goals-focused and begins by assisting the senior executive with defining areas for improvement. Through a series of purposeful conversations and new practices, coaching builds the executive’s self-awareness, creates sustainable behavioral changes and enables action.

While each executive coaching engagement is unique, some typical outcomes include:

  • Enhanced focus on and team alignment with strategic goals and priorities.
  • Resolution of challenges impeding progress toward business results.
  • Enhanced team coordination, collaboration, accountability, and effectiveness.
  • Clarity of vision as a leader and enhanced ability to lead from this vision.
  • Improved work management and delegation.
  • Improved communication up, down, and across.
  • Enhanced partnering and influence.
  • Increased skill and confidence in having difficult conversations.

The executive coach is not a consultant in the traditional sense. The difference is that the executive coach focuses on leadership, not technical skills, and relates to the senior executive as a partner versus advisor. Together, the coach and senior executive choose the focus, format, and desired outcomes for their work.
