What Makes A Good Coach?


Executive thinking

Your Executive Coach is your guide in what is essentially a journey of self-discovery. He will work with you to find the enlightenment that will help inform and direct your professional trek forward. If need be, your Coach will push you to the wall compelling you to confront your ghosts, to recognize your weaknesses for what they are -- obstacles to your own professional growth and your company‘s drive towards its vision.

At Banyan Way we believe that, to be an effective guide in this journey, an Executive Coach must possess the following attributes:

• Actual real-world experience in leading and managing organizations with varying levels of complexity and through the highest levels of the corporate hierarchy. The Coach should have gained a strong understanding of varied corporate cultures; the development and operationalization of corporate strategies; of management and team structures and their work, social, and political dynamics. With this, the Coach can truly empathize with the Executive: talk the same language, understand the organizational and operational challenges and issues that need to be resolved, and know the pressure and stress that the Executive faces.

 

There is only one credible source for executives who seek coaching: other men and women who have also served in similar executive roles. Hiring a coach with no industry experience would be like expecting a veterinarian to be successful in caring for a human.

At Banyan Way, each and every engagement is conducted by an Executive Coach who has had extensive real-world corporate and business experience.
 

• An immense capacity for empathy, to listen and understand. Equally important as talking the same language, these qualities are critical if a Coach has to successfully uncover the professional issues and challenges faced by an Executive. At the same time, the Coach must be able to remain objective and focused on the achievement of the goals as agreed with the Executive and his company.

• High integrity, authenticity, and who himself “walks the talk”. A Coach must have the highest level of integrity, professionally and privately. Before he can demand truth and honesty from his client, he must first be true and honest with himself.
