Executive coaching is designed to help leaders better understand their own skills and abilities in solving organizational and team issues. The coaching relationship is a partnership between the coach and leader with the touchstones of clarity, compassion, curiosity, confirmation and commitment. Successful coaching begins with a destination in mind and through a set of conversations, helps the executive or team leader to arrive successfully at improved leadership.


A typical coaching conversation might cover the following questions:

  • What is the outcome you’re looking to achieve?

  • Can you share the specifics of what’s going on?

  • Why do you think this is happening? 

  • What else can also be possible/true? 

  • What assumptions could you be making here?

  • If we were to switch roles, how would you handle this?

  • What ideas do you have? What’s another approach that may work (which you haven’t tried yet?)

  • What resources do you need?

  • What are you willing to commit to doing/trying/changing (by when)?

  • If you couldn’t use that excuse anymore, how would you move forward?

  • What would it mean to you if you could (achieve this, resolve this, etc….)? 

  • How would this impact/affect you (your team, career, etc.) if this (continues, doesn’t change, doesn’t get resolved)?
