The definition of executive coaching is a form of organisational learning that focuses on leadership development on an executive level (c-level suite). By offering executive leadership coaching, one can get past an impasse, remove a blockage and can draw out and build on strengths. An executive coach must not be mistaken for a consultant (although they may have experience in this area). They usually refrain from giving advice or solving their clients’ problems. Rather, they ask questions to help executives clarify and solve their own problems.

What makes a good executive coach?
Credentials and life experience play a huge role in how successful an executive coach is. Consider hiring a qualified coach who excels in the areas you need support in – for example if you need help in implementing new organisational behaviours, a coach specialised in organisational change may be more preferable.
What factors affect the success of executive coaching?
A key area that CoachHub stresses importance on is the working alliance between coach and coachee, i.e. the strength of the relationship. Ensuring the chemistry between the coach and client is as strong as possible will significantly contribute to the coaching success.
When should I hire an executive coach?
Traditionally, an executive coach would only be hired to fix problems through executive coaching training. Today, organisations are increasingly hiring executive coaches to invest in their top executives and high potentials. It is no longer a reactionary solution, it’s a proactive development tool. A common use case is transition coaching, i.e. when an employee has been newly promoted to a c-level role or when they are preparing for a new role.
