Mentoring & Executive Coaching

Mentoring & Executive Coaching

Executive coaching is a powerful, focused and effective development tool for senior leaders in any organisation. Coaching sessions are targeted, skilled conversations that challenge and support executives to lead themselves, others and their business to excel.
Whether you are focused on attaining an individual career goal, success with a team project, or are going through a time of transition or return to work after a break, the IoD coaching service is designed to support you in achieving your ambitions via targeted and skilled conversations with an expert coach.
Executive coaching works best when it:
  • is used to help drive culture change in an organisation
  • helps individuals to address specific issues or enhance their performance when taking on a particularly challenging work role or project
  • provides professional and personal development that is particularly appropriate for those in senior positions who have little time and for whom being lonely at the top can be a common experience
  • is driven by the needs of the client. It is about assisting people to achieve their full potential, with a focus on what they want to achieve now and in the future. It is a partnership between the executive coaches and the client for a defined period of time.
