- Introduction to Executive Coaching for Everyone
- Goal Setting
- Lecture 5 —Learning
As long as there have been good listeners and trusted advisors in the executive suite, there have been executive coaches. Not all executive coaches are trained, paid, or even know they’re coaches, for that matter. Indeed, when coaching is done well, it looks more like a good friend listening and asking probing questions and less like a football coach barking orders —in fact, the very opposite. So, the term coaching, while widely used, is a bit misleading. We should be called executive facilitators … but that just doesn’t have any panache. So, executive coach it remains. The coaching process begins when the client realizes that he or she wants help getting to the next level of performance. Often, the organization (the director of Human Resources, CEO, or chairperson) will not only initiate the process but also pay for it. Ultimately, however, the relationship between the client and the coach is the primary and principal relationship —one that remains confidential… though not protected by law in the same way lawyers and doctors and their clients enjoy that privilege. Yet the spirit of confidentiality is as vital to the coaching relationship as in any other profession —including law and medicine.

Great overview and refresher on concepts that I have used previously
The concept is well described, like a story. I like it! waiting to deep-dive.
I thought that this series was great as it went though specific steps and broke down these steps in easy to understand and execute plans. Steve Gladdis clearly has solid experience in the coaching field and has easy to relate to examples to back up his strategy. Thank you!!!
Steve offered a good, insightful overview of Executive Coaching.
Steve Gladis seems like a kind, funny, and knowledgeable man. He shared a simple and informative framework with great examples. I honestly learned a lot during the short course and would be interested in learning more from him.
