This article is about the practice of executive coaching at the top levels in organisations. The result of an exploratory survey, it looks at the outcomes of interviews with people from different sectors and with different backgrounds who all have experience of executive coaching. Based on the survey, this article formulates answers to the following questions:
Why do leaders work with coaches?
What issues are encountered at the top?
How are coaching and reflection given shape at the top?
What does executive coaching demand of coaches?
What are the do’s and don’ts?
What makes executive coaching effective?
And what similarities and differences are there when comparing coaching of leaders with coaching of their employees?
