Coaching is the process of guiding a business leader toward permanent change that will have a large and lasting impact on others and on their organization. It is a one-on-one collaboration with a doctoral level organizational psychologist that can be focused on preparing a high-potential executive for a leadership role, on addressing a specific obstacle to effectiveness, or on identifying development opportunities for continuous leadership growth.
Coaching causes quicker and more sustainable behavioral change than structured training programs for several reasons. Coaching is highly individualized—it focuses on the specific development needs of a particular executive. Coaching is highly contextualized—it is directed toward the specific people and situations in the executive’s world.
