Executive coaching is an outcomes-focused approach to personal development for high-potential leaders. It is a thinking partnership aimed at generating new insights and building on strengths to tap new performance levels and add value for the business and individual. It can be both supportive and challenging, and requires trust, confidentiality and hard work to produce the best results. Typical scenarios which benefit from coaching are transitioning to a new role, working with new team members or customers, improving stakeholder relationships, or resolving perceived “blocks” to advancement and personal fulfilment.
