Executive Coaching: What is it?

Executive coaching is relationship between a coach and generally more senior manager and directors. The main aim is to improve current leadership performance and look at what skills and abilities can enhance not just themselves as people but also as leaders for the betterment of their teams and hence their business. Working together, Anne Taylor at DIRECTions coaching, will ensure that any individual which has undertaken executive coaching gets what they want out of thecoaching relationship to improve efficacy.

Larger organisations tend to find executive coaching invaluable, and therefore invest heavily in their senior management to work with Anne. Whilst Anne works with London Business School frequently, she has also coached at recognisable companies such as Nestle, WH Smith, Lego and Aldi. What makes executive coaching different from other generic training courses is that it tends to be one to one and focuses on the individual. Anne takes time to allow the individual to reflect on what it is that they want to improve upon, whilst developing their personal awareness of strengths and areas for improvement. Working with Anne allows individuals with significant control of a business to improve themselves  and the working environment for their teams.

The one to one sessions in executive coaching may address personal issues, as well as business issues, particularly those which are seen to impact leadership and hence performance. Executive coaching is tailored specifically, but not limited to, directors and business owners who are seeking an independent and objective sounding board in order to make important decisions. It can also be particularly beneficial for managers who are having difficulties with managing teams and fellow employees. Or, of course, if you’re already a ‘high flyer’ and want to continue reaching and developing your full potential.
