People and organizations in general come to coaching for several reasons: There is change/improvement wanted in either themselves, in teams or within the organization. The reasons for choosing coaching go beyond the need to correct or resolve problem behaviors or poor performance issues. Employees want to be engaged, they want to work for a purpose they can align with and do meaningful work. Expectations on managers and leaders have dramatically increased and adaptability, innovation as well as resilience are skills that are required more than ever. Executive and Leadership Coaching is therefore also chosen to develop management- and executive-level skills, developmental and growth needs which impact the entire organization.


Multiple studies on organizational coaching needs have established the following reasons:
Develop the leadership skills of high-potential individuals
– Improve the odds that newly promoted managers would be successful
– Develop management and leadership skills among their technical people
– Correct behavioral problems at the management level
– Help leaders resolve interpersonal conflicts among employees.

Executive Coaching

Most organizations believe that once someone reaches executive or senior status in the organization, they should inherently be able to act under pressure, inspire and implement ideas, keep their skills sharp and current, and have all the answers. In actuality, they can eventually get there on their own but the engagement of a qualified executive coach will exponentially increase not only the time it takes for the executive to get there but also the ability for the executive and the company to sustain the change.
Improvements that stem directly from coaching engagements include: enhanced executive learning, gains in corporate performance, enhanced relationships, increased leadership effectiveness and personal and organizational improvements. In the process, not only do executives improve themselves but substantially have a greater impact on their organization. Benefits to the organization include enhanced individual and organizational performance which positively affect organizational culture. These further provide enhanced reputation within the industry, improved employee morale, and positive work environments, thus greater productivity and enhanced client relationships.
