What Is Executive Coaching?

Executive coaching is a learning approach that creates self-awareness, helps drive transformational change, and provides critical challenge and support. Our executive coaching services build a collaborative relationship between the coach and the leader and are customized to fit the needs of busy executives.  

Through regular virtual coaching sessions via phone, video, or web platform, the executive coach understands the leader’s strengths and weaknesses, which then inform the development of innovative, personalized solutions.

Strengthen Your Top Leaders With Executive Coaching Services

Even in challenging business environments when company resources are under tight scrutiny, organizations prioritize coaching. 

That’s because in times of uncertainty, leaders are responsible for making strategic decisions that may change the course of their organizations, and coaching provides a laser-focused approach specifically targeted for these key people in the organization.

Research has proven that the results of executive coaching include:

  • Improvement in team leadership performance
  • Sustainable organizational change
  • Increased emotional intelligence and self-awareness so leaders can use their strengths more effectively
  • Higher levels of leader resilience
  • Development of strategic thinking skills

“I just introduced one very small behavioral change, but it’s amazing the impact this is having on my team. Now, the first thing I always do is try to ask a question. I always start that conversation with a question.”

“My coach was objective, non-judgmental, and asked thought-provoking questions, which is what I needed and helped me to process. He was able to quickly grasp where I was coming from … and relate back to my experience, which can be hard to do in such a short amount of time. ”

Frequently Asked Questions About Executive Coaching

By participating in executive coaching experiences, your leaders will gain increased self-awareness, a drive for transformational change, and a renewed sense of opportunity. Coaching can improve performance in key ways, including providing a greater understanding of self, others, and the larger organizational context; and an enhanced ability to communicate effectively and coach others. Our coaches provide critical support and feedback to help leaders set goals, create action plans, and enhance performance.

Executive coaches work closely with leaders to provide and interpret valuable feedback, identify challenges and opportunities, ask thought-provoking questions, act as a sounding board, and facilitate learning. By supporting leaders and monitoring progress over time, coaches are able to help grow careers and transform individuals and entire organizations. Learn more about choosing an executive coach to enhance performance.

Once you get started, our experts take your leaders’ industry, skills, language, and personality into account before pairing them with the right executive coach. Then, the coach will establish a comfortable and confidential relationship with your leaders in order to create a safe and confidential space that encourages focus, clarity, and purpose. Finally, depending on the amount of hours you purchased and your leaders’ schedules, coaches will be available for 30- or 60-minute virtual sessions to discuss, challenge, support, and give feedback.

Research has found that those who have had executive coaching are significantly more effective leaders, with increased resilience, emotional intelligence, and self-awareness. They’re able to use their strengths more effectively and can recognize and work around their weaknesses. Executive coaching helps leaders feel they have an increased sense of self-understanding, purpose, and clarity on next steps to drive change. Of course, there is a benefit to continuing a long-term executive coaching relationship, but even a brief coaching engagement during turbulent times can be an effective experience that results in the ability to set clear goals and navigate a crisis with confidence.

Finding the best executive coach is a personal experience and should be tailored to the individual or individuals who are participating. At CCL, our world-class coaches are among the top 3% of coaches in the world, undergoing a rigorous selection, training, and quality control process. Our experts consider your leaders’ expertise, industry, skillset, personality, and language before matching them with the right coach.

Executive coaching is different from other types of approaches because it is relationship-based, focused on the individual and how they show up as they lead, and designed to make a personal connection that gives way to organizational transformation. Coaching is focused on enhancing current job performance — leaders work directly with an executive coach to discuss ideas, receive feedback, and set personalized goals. Often an executive coach will help the leader understand feedback from assessments, create and work through a development plan, and address any specific business or interpersonal challenges.
