Business and executive Coaching

Business coaching is a type of human resource development for business leaders. It provides
positive support, feedback and advice on an individual or group basis to improve personal
effectiveness in the business setting. Business coaching is also called executive coaching,
corporate coaching or leadership coaching. Coaches help their clients advance towards specific
professional goals.

These include careertransition, interpersonal and professional communication, performance
management, organizational effectiveness, managing career and personal changes, developing
executive presence, enhancing strategic thinking, dealing effectively with conflict, and
building an effective team within an organization. An industrial organizational psychologist
is one example of executive coach.

Business coaching is not restricted to external experts or providers. Many organizations expect
their senior leaders and middle managers to coach their team members to reach higher levels of
performance, increased job satisfaction, personal growth, and career development. Research
studies suggest that executive coaching has a positive impact on workplace performance.
