Role of an Executive Coach:
Executive coaches provide the roadmap for collaboration in order to form a “strategic partnership” with Executives and Leaders. Executive coaches are a dependable and trustworthy sounding board for leaders and executives. As trusted guides, they effectively help leaders to achieve sustainable development, change, and growth at every level; whether it’s an individual, group, or organization. An executive coach is simultaneously a business coach that can guide a leader on vital skills such as communication, conflict management, team building, decision making, and interpersonal interactions, giving an executive the strategic planning tools to boost both efficiency and effectiveness.
The Need for an Executive Coach
Executives and leaders today are expected to deliver exceptional results with resources available at their disposal. Executives and leaders have a scarcity of people with whom they can test ideas and discuss openly the challenges they are facing. In this sense, the “top” is often a lonely place to be. An executive requires command of the requisite leadership skills and behaviors, yet unfortunately, these traits are often found to be in short supply.
