Executive coaching, also called leadership coaching, is a judgment-free way of naming the elephants in the room, transforming blocks and achieving desired outcomes all while developing into a more sophisticated and fun version of oneself. It's based on the Socratic Method, when the coaches asks powerful, clarifying questions that reveal insight that leads to clarity regarding next steps.
Over the last decades, executive coaching has become an accepted organizational practice across the globe. The demand for coaching has increased with C-Suite and other executive leaders funding bigger initiatives due to the consistently high ROI and the decision to transform toxic work cultures.
Executive coaching is strictly confidential and the coach and client are equals in supporting the client's intentions and goals. During coaching, any topic related to the person and his/her goals is discussed to remove obstacles and open up options and choice. It's common that personal issues are explored while building leadership skills as coaches speak to the whole human who can question inherited mindsets and broaden their minds to lead in more impactful ways amidst increasing uncertainties.
Coaching is not therapy: while we attend to emotional distress, we do not provide diagnoses or analyze past history. Coaching focuses on making client's current situation better for a better future.
