Executive Coaching

Background
The use of executive "coaches" has become very popular during the past several years. The primary reasons for this growth are due to several factors:

  1. The "rules of engagement" for managing a business have changed radically. Previously companies could take a reasonable amount of time to find and groom new executives, or key managers, before putting them into "live game" situations for performing their roles.
  2. The pace of business has changed radically. In the past, companies could take as much time as they needed to fix key problems, or to satisfy strategic goals, without having these delays cause material consequences on the desired outcome. Operating in today's global economy makes "learning on the job" very risky and very demanding. Additionally, delays of any magnitude can now have devastating consequences on the success of the business.
  3. Overall tolerances for mistakes has been reduced substantially. In today's business environment, success or failure can be determined by "inches" and not by "miles". A delay making a decision, or a mistake staffing a key position, can now have profound consequences on the business.
