Most executive coaching cases begin in a fairly predictable manner. An experienced coach is contacted by the boss or human resources (HR) partner of a talented senior leader, and they discuss the prospective coaching engagement. The coach and executive then meet and in the presence of good chemistry and a clear contract, the work commences—work that is focused on helping a gifted individual become even more effective. Depending on the coach’s model, there can be other steps in between but basically this reflects how the use of executive coaching has shifted from a remedial intervention to that of a powerful development resource.
