There are six scenarios that ideally require an Executive Coach.

1. Stretch assignments: For an executive facing a sudden critical assignment with intense time and budget constraints, or promoted into a new position or back-filling a current opening, a coach can provide a valuable safety net and sounding board.

2. High-potential executives: A manager on the fast-track, who's being groomed for leadership positions, might need extra guidance to help him or her advance quickly.

3. Uneven leadership skills: When an executive's weakness in interpersonal relationships, decision making or managerial proficiency is causing low morale and internal conflict, a coach may be the best way to help that person recognize his or her problems and figure out how to turn them around.

4. Specific performance problems: For the leaders of units and divisions that are behind plan or unlikely to meet business targets, a coach can provide strategic business insights and support.

5. Beat the competition: A coach can help executives enhance their leadership and business skills so that their organizations can stay ahead of the competition.

6. Building teams: Often used in mergers and acquisitions or turn-around situations, coaching helps an executive team quickly acquires new skills, particularly when time is of the essence.

Any more to add from your side ? Any scenario that you can think of to generate a meaningful discussion..

I've just added a post to ask my fellow professionals the question - Why bother to Coach ?

Since I feel its very important to understand the objectives to be achieved by coaching rather than just an HR intervention.

What say ?

Dear All,

To develop Leadership competencies, Executive Coaching is essential. You may engage the identified  Executives to undergo a 360 degree Appraisal, getting the feedback/  feedforward from the stake holders and provide a rigurous coaching to change their high impact behaviour which makes an impact in his personal & profesional life. It would be aligned with the business objectives.
