About Executive Coaching

Coaching - Mentoring - Consulting - Counseling

The Coach’s primary attention is on strengthen the client’s wisdom, thought processes, and directed action toward the future, based on the client’s self-identified agenda. A supportive and non-judgmental environment is created in which to inquire, challenge, and stimulate critical thinking and new ways of being, thinking, and acting, often resulting in new behaviors applicable to the client’s whole life.

The Mentor’s primary attention is on imparting wisdom to a less experienced individual by taking an active interest in their development. A less experienced individual learns from someone who is literally and/or metaphorically older and wiser and has worn the same shoes and traveled a similar path.

A Consultant’s primary attention is on helping an individual achieve personal or organizational results through the application of their specific expertise where they advise or tell the client what the best course of action for achieving desired goals might be. Consultants may or may not also be charged with transferring knowledge or a skill set to their client.

Counseling (Therapy)
The Counselor’s focus in or addressing a personal issue with client, often related to emotions, attitude or behavior. Counseling therapy may include asking thought-provoking questions similar to those used in coaching. The emphasis however is on applying principles of mental health, holistic lifestyle, psychology and human development to address wellness, personal growth, behavioral change or emotional well-being.

Who Gets an Executive Coach?

According to the 17th annual SHERPA research study on executive coaching, coaching att all levels is up (from 27% to 34%) however coaching for "senior managers" is down (from 40% to 33%). Coaching for "top execitives" remained about the same.

“Given how vitally important it is for the CEO to be getting the best possible counsel, independent of their board, in order to maintain the health of the corporation, it’s concerning that so many of them are ‘going it alone,’” says Stephen Miles, CEO of The Miles Group. “Even the best-of-the-best CEOs have their blind spots and can dramatically improve their performance with an outside perspective weighing in.” The Miles Group, working with Stanford University, reported that nearly 66% of CEOs do not receive coaching or leadership advice from outside consultants or coaches, while 100% of them stated that they are receptive to making changes based on feedback. Nearly 80% of directors said that their CEO is receptive to coaching. “If CEOs are willing to be coached and make changes based on coaching, it stands to reason that companies and boards should make this happen.”
