Choosing an Executive Coach
Karen K. Miller, Wayne Hart, Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) Staff
Leadership in the top management ranks is often a lonely business. It can be difficult to get accurate feedback, for example, and it gets more difficult the higher you move in an organization. Many managers are reluctant to "open up" to colleagues, and sometimes it may be ill advised to do so. Yet it's difficult to improve leadership skills and job performance without input from others about strengths, weaknesses, and options for improvement. Many managers recognize that to focus their personal development plans they need the uninterrupted time and attention of a skilled, objective facilitator. This guidebook is for managers who are considering executive coaching as a tool in their personal leadership development. It describes what executive coaching is, and can help you decide whether coaching is appropriate for your situation. You'll also learn how to locate and select a qualified coach with the professional and personal credentials and characteristics that match your developmental needs so that you can achieve the goals you've set.
