Making Sense of it allMarshall Goldsmith : In many ways executive coaching is still aprimitive and newly emerging field. Both leaders and companies arestruggling with, “Exactly what does an executive coach do?” and “Whatcan executive coaching do for our company?” Many books have discussed how an individual can be a great coach for one leader, yet little has been written on how organizations can create great coaching processes that impact many of their leaders.

YOU are the reasonSo how can organizations create great coaching processes that impact many of theirpotential leaders? Leadership development was largely focused on participants’ involvement in training programs. These programs were all based upon one completely invalid assumption—if they understand, they will do it.

You know how hard it is to achieve positive, lasting change. We are just as busy, just as over-committed and just as crazy. If we don’t have a coach to give ongoing advice, support and encouragement, we tend to slip back, just like anyone else. Confidential 6
