“Executive Coaching is aimed at inspiring executive leaders to make behavioral changes which transform themselves and the people around them thereby increasing business results and performance.”Jeremy Robinson, working definition of executive coaching
Through a progression of inquiry, confidential dialogue, and thinking partnership, the coach serves in the reflective exploration journey to help the client examine and develop decision-making dynamics. The coach’s role is to pave the way for the client to experiment with new paths of thinking and being, explore , examine and change strongly held believes and behavior , and ultimately commit to action plans that help attain the client’s objectives.
Coaching is a unique opportunity for executives and leaders to achieve impressive results and fine-tune their development and leadership skills. A coach acts as a facilitator of sustainable growth: He strives to bring in an impressive set of tools, experiences, and perspectives to the targeted workplace and devise a customized and unique opportunity for leaders to integrate coaching conversations into managerial skill repertoires.
To set the analogy right, a coaching experience is as much a dance as it is a learning experience. Now imagine a tango! Just as the dancer sways his partner through the dancing floor with defined and strategic paces terminating in a unique and self-expressive dancing routine, an executive coach leads his client through the dance floor of a conversation culminating in an evocative learning and growing experience.
“Effective leadership coaching can happen on the dance floor of a conversation” John G Agno
