What is an Executive Coach?
Perhaps the term seems like the latest buzzword, but an Executive Coach is not a simply a consultant. I do consulting as well, so I draw a very clear distinction (see About Consulting & Executive Coaching). A consultant comes in to an organization, analyzes the situation, and makes organizational structure or process recommendations. A consultant almost never addresses the stickiest part – the people.
When working as an Executive Coach, I take a whole different approach, starting with the leader of the team. I look to understand that person, their challenges, their goals and objectives for themselves and the team, and work from there. The solutions are in the form of ways for the executive to be more effective, making the team more effective as a result. The result is a more directed approach that involves more specifics and more action, and often ends up having more lasting effect.
