Executive Coaching

The International Coaching Federation (ICF) defines coaching as partnering in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires a person to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity, and leadership. When you work with a coach, you set out on a path to greater personal and professional fulfillment.

Coaching is helping a person tap into their own internal wisdom, which is accomplished by evoking awareness that can help the client consider different perspectives or alternate approaches. A coach’s relative lesser experience in your industry or type of role does not preclude them from partnering with you to help you achieve your career goals. They are your thinking partners who are experts in the process of coaching — collaborating with you, challenging your own thinking, and helping evoke creativity and innovation.

What results can I expect from being coached?

Business leaders, who engage a coach often experience benefits that include increased confidence, enhanced communication skills, and optimized individual and team performance. An individual’s results from coaching will be tightly aligned with the goals they set with their coach at the start of the engagement.

Especially when working with organization leaders, coaching’s beneficial impacts flow beyond the individual receiving coaching. Many coaching clients find the benefits of their coaching—such as improved self-awareness, communication skills and open-mindedness—positively impact their lives far beyond the original goals, including in their team dynamics and personal relationships. This might include increased performance from team members who feel more empowered and can more easily share ideas, or perhaps reduced stress or an improved ability to actively listen.
