Executive coaching differs from performance improvement coaching, which is often offered when an individual is under a performance improvement plan. Executive coaching is for leaders who are interested in moving from an effective leader to an extraordinary leader, not for those on a performance improvement plan.
Coaching is a one-on-one confidential, entirely voluntary, relational process between a coach and a client that is focused on meeting the needs and goals of the client in order to , increase leadership effectiveness, and/or enhance personal satisfaction and consequently to improve the effectiveness of the organization as a whole.
Through coaching, leaders further develop their emotional intelligence and gain practice in dealing with difficult work challenges and relationships using the safety of the coaching environment, which will ultimately lead to professional growth and improvement.
