Coaching executives, high level management, and corporate employees require an understanding of a company culture, the unwritten "rules" or politics and posturing, developing new skills sets, and learning new tools not found in a traditional coach training program. An executive coach may be hired by the company or by the individual who works for the company. When hired by the company, the individual may not have requested coaching as part of the action plan to enhance their performance. An individual hiring a coach may desire to develop new skills, be a stronger leader, and navigate through the company culture to achieve certain goals, improve perception of others, or gain new skills as a leader. An executive coach works with individuals and groups who want to address and change the workplace, communication, engagement, reduce friction, increase creativity, etc.
