What is an Executive Coach

What is Executive Coaching?

I've seen dozens of definitions of coaching and I haven't liked any of them.

I believe the coach is neither a counselor nor consultant, and I tell my clients that coaching is about 3 things:

  1. Change. Coaching is a partnership designed to produce positive change in performance. Working together, the coach and “coachee” can transform how a person leads and interacts with colleagues.
  2. Discovery. Coaching promotes learning through discovery. A coach’s role is to tell the truth, to make things visible; it’s about what Susan Scott, calls “fierce conversations.”
  3. Accountability. The coach is there to motivate a person to take action, to try new behaviors and hold them accountable for their commitments.
