What is Executive Coaching?
There has been an explosion of Coaches and Coaching Services on the market, Executive Coaching is increasingly seen as a significant way of contributing to an organisations change and management agenda. We would first like to clarify what we mean by coaching and then follow with some insights about the benefits of having coaching.
Tim Gallwey is largely credited with bringing coaching into the arena of business life. He started as a tennis coach and wrote a book called the "Inner Game of Tennis". He subsequently wrote The Inner Game of Golf and The Inner Game of Work. All of his books are extremely readable and useful. His definition of coaching embraces the empowering concept of teaching people to learn, rather than just simply teaching them and describes the Coaching process as follows:
“In every human endeavor there are two arenas of engagement: the outer and the inner. The outer game is played on an external arena to overcome external obstacles to reach an external goal. The inner game takes place within the mind of the player and is played against such obstacles as fear, self-doubt, lapses in focus, and limiting concepts or assumptions. The inner game is played to overcome the self-imposed obstacles that prevent an individual or team from accessing their full potential.”
