There was a very interesting article and accompanying video yesterday in the Wall Street journal online entitled “Executive Coaching – Worth the Money?“. The video looks at the actual impact of one company’s experience with employing executive coaching services.
The Wall Steet video discusses how the owners have benefitted from a series of offsite coaching sessions (4/year) supported by regular ongoing 1-1 phone based support work. It’s a great practical example of how executive coaching is supporting businesses – large and small – from many different industries.
This is quite similar to some of the coaching work which I undertake including Shadow Coaching, 1-1 executive coaching, or a team coaching approach which involves all business partners, owners or senior managers.
Curious about what executive coaching might do for your managers, or teams? The most recent 2008 Sherpa Executive Coaching survey has found that at least half of executive coaching is currently being used for leadership development purposes.
What’s your biggest leadership challenge right now?
I’d welcome speaking with you to see how coaching services could support your managers and teams performance, retention and productivity measures.
