The 5 Benefits Executives identified from Coaching

In a study conducted with executives, they found 5 benefits that they identified they received from executive coaching as a leadership development strategy.  They are:

  1. Continuous one-on-one attention
  2. Expanded thinking through dialogue with a curious outsider
  3. Self-awareness, including blind spots
  4. Personal accountability for development
  5. Just-in-time learning.

They also identified the factors that play a significant role in creating a successful coaching initiative are: a willing executive, a skilled coach and realistic expectations.

I have personally found these to be true in my own experience coaching executives - it is powerful and the #1 thing in my mind is the executive has to be willing.
