Executive coaching is a professional relationship between a trained coach and a client (who may be an individual or a group) with the goal to enhance the client’s leadership or management performance and development. Through a process of inquiry, dialogue, and other tools, the coach serves as a thought partner to help the client examine and develop his or her decision-making, experiment with new ways of thinking and being, and commit to action steps that help achieve the client’s goals.

“Coaching is not telling people what to do; it’s giving them a chance to examine what they are doing in light of their intentions.”

“A masterful coach is a vision builder and value shaper… Who enters into the learning system of a person, business, or social institution with the intent of improving it so as to impact people’s ability to perform.”
