Executive Coaching is one-on-one interaction between an executive or manager and an external facilitator. The process includes comprehensive assessment and facilitation that serves to enhance self-understanding and explore possible changes which will facilitate professional and personal development. The purpose is to improve managerial skills.
There are two types of coaching: one is the "fix-it" situation where someone needs to do something better or to stop doing something; the second is coaching to develop or improve skills. Coaching is results-oriented.
The identification of themes can reflect the strengths and developmental needs. The strengths can be used to leverage the developmental needs. Action planning utilizes those patterns to move forward in developmental growth.
Although one is well trained in a specialty like engineering or marketing, being promoted to a position of authority over people can be overwhelming. Without "people" skills in the tool box, one can resort to an autocratic or counterproductive style that interferes with teamwork or project success. Coaching is a process where the relationship formed between the coach and the coachee, along with the assessment data, can provide both a supportive and challenging environment. This enables the participant to learn skills that make him or her a better manager or leader.
