What is an Executive?
An executive is a leader in the top or upper levels of an organisation or business. That is, a CEO, senior manager, business owner, or director.
The challenges an executive faces are many and varied. Not only are you trying to achieve results for your organisation, but you are faced with continuous change, competing priorities and practical challenges on a daily basis; and a need to work with and through people who are often very different in terms of personality, competence and commitment.
To be a successful executive, you need to become outstanding in the key capability areas. Executive success then, is the right mix of skills and competencies, developed at a high enough level, to drive results. And this is where executive coaching comes in.
What is Executive Coaching?
Executive coaching is a development process facilitated by a coach focused on helping executives to improve their performance and, as a result, the performance of their organisation as a whole. In short, the focus is on making it easier for you to reach goals that were previously difficult to attain. Executive coaching is also characterised by:
- A strong focus on accelerating achievement and improving the impact of executives;
- The organisation, the executive, and the executive coach working in partnership.
- The creation of a tailored, one-to-one solution for the specific needs of the executive.
Executive coaching can have a significant impact on performance, but like any successful approach to performance improvement, it needs to be managed properly.
