Businesses realize that developing skills and abilities in their workforce should not be limited to their front-line staff but also be provided for executives and leadership teams. When considering leadership development the question ‘What is executive coaching?’ often arises.
Executive coaching is a powerful method for transforming the performance of senior leaders in an organization. By working one-to-one with a professional coach they can identify their goals and challenges and then work to achieve and overcome them, respectively. Executive coaching can improve a leader’s performance dramatically as it is focused entirely on that individual’s characteristics, strengths, and personality and is the fastest and most effective form of leadership development.
Executive coaching can help improve an executive’s leadership skills, enable them to set better goals, improve their decision making and improve their communications and relationships with peers and subordinates as well as enabling them to grow as a leader.
