ELEMENTS OF A SUCCESSFUL EXECUTIVE COACHING RELATIONSHIP
The ultimate purpose of enlisting an executive coach is to assist in improving the personal and professional growth of managers and executives which will positively influence their leadership, co-workers and direct reports.
It is important when entering into a executive coaching relationship that the manager or executive is prepared for the investment (both financially and emotionally) just as in a successful venture.
Therefore, managers and executives should think of success in four major areas of the relationship:
1. The Executive Coach
2. The Manager or Executive
3. The Relationship between the Coach and the Manager or Executive
4. Organizational Support
