What is Executive Coaching?


Coaching is a process that helps the participant to become the kind of person that they are capable of being, both at work and in their wider life. The coach uses conversation to assist, support and encourage the coaching counterpart to access answers to key questions that will reveal deeper insights and lead to professional and personal growth.  View PowerPoint (PPT 242KB)

This coaching approach is based on the programs of the Institute of Executive Coaching, Positive Psychology and Solution Focused Coaching. It also draws on understandings from the fields of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Neuro-linguistic Programming.

  1. Improvement in the counterpart’s self-awareness; and
  2. Reflection (and action) based on this increased self-awareness.
