Executive Career Coaching Explained
What is Executive Career Coaching?
Executive coaching is a form of professional, one-on-one development and support for executives and high-level managers. It focuses on helping individuals improve professional performance and to develop leadership, communication, and management skills. Other areas can include work-life balance, presence, influence, career transition, and more.
Executive coaching helps to sharpen your ability to set objectives, prioritize tasks, manage time effectively, solve problems, and/or make decisions in a way that helps you grow as a well-rounded individual. It also helps you to appreciate your strengths and identify areas in which you can continue to grow.
