What is Executive Coaching?
What Executive Coaching is, and why it is an essential part of a leader’s development.

Executive Coaching

Whether you are the CEO, CTO or Managing Director, Executive Coaching provides a safe and confidential space to work on current challenges and move forward on specific projects. Working one to one with a qualified and experienced Executive Coach enables you to focus on outcomes such as developing a strategy, building your team or managing change.  Targeted conversations with your coach will challenge yet support you, enabling you and your organisation, to succeed more easily and effectively.

“Executive Coaching is aimed at inspiring executive leaders to make behavioural changes which transform themselves and the people around them thereby increasing business results and performance.” Jeremy Robinson, working definition of executive coaching. 

Coaching is driven by the needs of the leader. It is about assisting individuals to achieve their full potential, with a focus on what they want to achieve now and in the future. It is a partnership between the executive coach and the client, typically for a defined period of time, although some Executive coaching relationships can last for several years.
