Executive Coaching in the Recent Essay

Excerpt from Essay :



Further, it can also be noted that initially, I took coaching to be a critical undertaking in the development of skills as well as talents of leaders and executives. This is a view which has also been reinforced by my recent readings of the relevant texts. Just like I believed in the past, executive/organizational coaching enables executives to respond to various pressures in addition to meeting a wide range of organizational goals in an increasingly dynamic working environment. Hence in a way, one of the main purposes of coaching remains the development of skills and other competencies. This is a view I held in the past and which has further been enhanced or reinforced today.

However, it is important to note that I had a somewhat limited view of the purpose of an executive/organizational coach in so far as nurturing skills and talents of leaders is concerned. In this case, I assumed that the role of coaches was largely limited to the enhancement of existing skills of leaders. However, based on my current enhanced view, some situations like the promotion of an individual to new leadership or management positions call for the development of an entirely new set of leadership skills. Thus coaches may be required to help leaders develop entirely new and more sophisticated behaviors or skills required in their new responsibilities.

Conclusion

In conclusion, executive coaching is increasingly being viewed as a way of building the capabilities of leaders as far as the achievement of organizational and professional goals is concerned. With organizations slowly coming to terms with the need for learning and skill development in an organizational setting, coaching is expected to play a critical role in organizational transformation going forward.
