Executive coaching is a wonderful means to build substantial leadership, to nurture the human capital of organisations and the energy/spirit of each person. This is particularly the case when executive management skills, tailored to specific live management situations, are developed through the in-depth/in breadth relationship with a skilled coach. The process of achievement of organisational management goals (such as staff reviews, enterprise wide systems change, and delivery of specific business management targets) is a vehicle for leadership development (including such things as insight, good judgement, superior relationship building, effective influencing skills, effective change management and presence). By working on what’s right within organisations, coaches and managers can enhance sustainable change that comes from grounded decision making. Managers find the experience very energising personally and professionally and report marked improvement in output and morale in their teams, improved staff engagement, clear strategic decision making and increased quantity and quality in stakeholder relationships as a result of coaching.
