An executive coach is a qualified professional who works with individuals at senior career levels. Many leaders can hit a plateau, needing to gain new perspectives to help them move forward. This type of coaching results in the client gaining self-awareness, clarifying career and life goals, achieving developmental objectives, unlocking new potential, and using the coach as a sounding board for strategic progress.
People who seek executive coaching want to:
1. See themselves more clearly
2. Gain perspectives in how they see others
3. Respond more effectively to challenges
4. Leverage their strengths and weaknesses
5. Build better alliances
6. Achieve career goals
