is designed to assist individuals responsible for executive roles in organizations and business. Professional and personal development of the client is based on improving performance and contentment. The coach stimulates client self-discovery with challenging inquiries and/or giving homework assignments. These become "thought experiments" if written or "field experiments" which are activities in the work situation to prompt experiential learning and development of alternative approaches to work situations. Coaching requires astute understanding of individual nuances in business situations to adjust coaching appropriately. Identification and working with differences is critical to successful coaching.
Among the various executive or business situations, the coach helps the client address varied motivations and cultural differences. The executive coaches assists the client in achieving specific professional goals, such as career transition, interpersonal and professional communication, performance management, organizational effectiveness, managing career and personal changes, developing executive presence, enhancing strategic thinking, dealing effectively with conflict, and building an effective team within an organization.
