The Realities of Executive Coaching


The Harvard Business Report has released its Research Report titled, The Realities of Executive Coaching by Carol Kauffman and Diane Coutu.
While I was honored to have been invited to participate in their survey of the top 245 coaches, I was not one of the 140 who responded (I guess I was too busy on Twitter or Facebook or something!), yet I know and respect many of my colleagues whose names are on the list and concur with most of the findings, therefore wanted to share them with you.
They define Executive Coaching as “a confidential, individually-tailored engagement designed to meet the needs both of the executive being coached and the organization paying for the service.”  The HBR January 2009 issue will have an article based on these research findings called, “What Can Coaches Do for You?” by the same authors and additional analyses by five experts.
