What Is Executive Coaching?

Many people are familiar with coaching in the sports world but ask ‘What is executive coaching?’. Executive coaching is similar except that it allows business executives to receive advice and encouragement from an experienced professional on how they can maximize their personal and leadership potential,

An executive coach provides a structured, safe and trustworthy environment in which an individual receives advice and strategies for how they can better understand their current competence and abilities, receive feedback on how they are perceived by others in their role and are helped to identify and focus on their goals and the actions they need to take to achieve them effectively. Some managers also take classes to develop their coaching skills so they can help employees improve their performance and develop their leadership roles. Executive coaching can be done both internally and externally with different providers offering varying levels of support.
