Leadership is a profession that many enter with minimal formal preparation. Executive coaching is a way for leaders to immerse themselves in highly focused, accelerated learning related to managing and leading people. The coaching relationship is like a one-on-one capstone seminar in leadership and personal effectiveness where an experienced or emerging leader gets a chance to shine a light on the neglected aspects of his/her education with the support of someone who is a well established leader and skilled educator.
The workplace becomes the learning laboratory with no need to go elsewhere for study and practice. Everyday human dilemmas of leading become the case studies. Coaches help current and emerging leaders examine their reactions to these dilemmas and analyze their performance, communication effectiveness, interpersonal skills and strategic thinking as well as that of their team’s. During this process leaders wind up affirming their values, clarifying their purpose and determining new actions to be used for competitive advantage.
