Executive coaching is part of talent development. If you want your top executive-level staff to learn new skills and become better at their jobs, executive coaching is the answer. It calls for a qualified coach who develops a confidential relationship with the coachee.
The two will meet together regularly to discuss workplace challenges in a safe space so that the executive can feel supported in their role. The coach is there to help the leader develop self-awareness and start to realize what their strengths are and how they come across in the workplace. Executive coaching is often goal-oriented, and the coach will help the coachee to define appropriate steps to help them reach their goals.
