What Does an Executive Coach Do?

Problem Solving
First, the executive coach analyzes the gap between the company's expectations and the manager's performance. Then, the manager’s effectiveness is examined from several points of view, including behavioral and style issues, company culture and values, and changes in the industry.

Second, the executive coach develops a specific coaching plan to help managers improve their performance. The plan will include work in some of the following areas:

Problem solving
Establishing effective business relationships
Learning to think strategically
Managing time more efficiently
Delegating effectively
Improving communication skills
Balancing work, life, and family

Finally, the executive coach chooses the most effective coaching format:

One-on-one sessions
Joint sessions with manager and subordinate(s)
Team development
On-site, day-long observations of an executive, followed by feedback.
