Coaching For Executives
As the world becomes increasingly fast-paced and competitive, more and more people are beginning to realise the importance of taking care of their physical, emotional and mental health. In Singapore, wellness coaching is becoming an increasingly popular way to help people improve their overall well-being.
What is Executive Coaching
An ever-increasing number of executives are turning to professional coaching to help them improve their performance. Executive coaching is a process in which trained coaches work with leaders and managers to help enhance their performance in the workplace and reach their goals.
The executive coach acts as a sounding board, providing honest feedback and supporting their clients to develop new mindsets and actionable plans for improvement. The coaching process is tailored to each individual and typically includes a frank assessment of current performance, goal setting, and the development of a new strategy for achieving those goals.
For any executive or leader who is looking to take their performance to the next level, executive coaching is an essential tool.

How does coaching help you achieve success?
As an executive, you are expected to juggle multiple demands and meet high standards – both in your career and in your personal life. Executive coaches are specifically trained to work with executives and other high-level professionals.
Coaches can provide a much-needed sounding board for ideas, offer new perspectives, and support you to make tough decisions. They will help you clarify your goals and identify the steps you need to take to achieve them.
A coach will support you to identify the beliefs that make up the boundaries of your comfort zone and to examine the process and cons of moving outside of it.
With the help of a professional coach, you can reach your goals faster and more effectively – both in your career and in your personal life.
Coaching for executives typically takes place over the course of several months, and it is important to choose a coach who is a good fit for the executive’s personality and goals. A good executive coach will be someone who is not only supportive, but also unafraid to challenge you.
Role of an executive coach
Executive coaches are specifically trained to work with executives and other high-level professionals.
A good executive coach help individuals improve their communication and problem-solving skills, sharpen their decision-making abilities, and better understand themselves.
The coach will work primarily through a process of asking questions and offering feedback and different points of view.
In addition, they can provide a much-needed sounding board for ideas and help leaders learn how to delegate tasks and responsibilities more effectively. Learning to “let-go” is often one of the biggest challenges faced by managers.
The ultimate goal of coaching is to help leaders become more effective in their roles and to help them achieve their career and personal life goals.
What makes a good coach for an executive?
A good executive coach will be able to have their client develop a sense of confidence in themselves and their own abilities. They will work through a combination of asking questions, providing feedback and offering different points of view, in order to stimulate new ways of thinking, feeling and acting.
In addition, a good executive coach will be able to adapt their approach to meet your specific needs. They will be someone who is easy to talk to and empathetic while also being unafraid to be honest with you.

How to prepare for executive coaching?
If you are considering executive coaching, congratulations! You are on your way to becoming your best version of you. But before you jump into coaching sessions, it is important to do your homework and prepare for the experience.
First, take some time to reflect on your goals for coaching. What do you hope to achieve? What areas of your life or work would you like to improve? Be as specific as possible. Executive coaching can be a transformative experience, but it is only effective if you know what you want to work on and why.
Your coach will provide accountability and support throughout the process. By taking the time to prepare for executive coaching, you will set yourself up for success and ensure that you get the most out of the experience.
Here are five key tips to help you get the most out of executive coaching:
One of the most important aspects of executive coaching is receiving honest feedback from your coach and the people around you. This feedback can be difficult to hear, but it is essential in helping you to identify areas of improvement and discovering where you are on and off track.
Is an executive coach worth it?
An executive coach can be an invaluable asset for any business leader. Top athletes, sportsmen and women all have coaches. Why would the game of business be any different?
High performers, who are committed to improving further, realise that a good, qualified coach is essential because the coach can observe them as they play their game. However good you are you are at your game, you have blind spots in your physical, mental and approach that it is basically impossible for you to observe for yourself.
A great executive coach will help you see the see the invisible beliefs, habits and patterns that make up your current worldview. Every human being has these, but not every human being wants to become aware of them.
In addition, an executive coach can provide an outside perspective on your challenges and support you to see things from a different angle. However, they will rarely give you advice or tell what you should do.
Deciding what to do and then doing it, is the role of the client, not the coach. This is something that distinguishes coaches from consultants and mentors. Furthermore, executive coaches can provide useful feedback and accountability to help you stay on track.
Hiring an executive coach is an investment in your future.
How long should executive coaching last?
The duration of executive coaching will vary depending on the needs of the executive being coached. In general, though, executive coaching should last long enough to give time for new practices and habits to become embedded. Typically, this equates to a period of several months of regular coaching sessions.
Some executives may need longer-term coaching, particularly if they are struggling with complex issues or deeply embedded habits and practices in critical areas.
Executive coaching can also be provided in shorter, more intense periods, such as during a leadership development program.
The majority of executive coaching relationships last between 6 and 12 months, although some may go longer.
Ultimately, the decision of how long to make an executive coaching relationship should be made based on what will be most effective for the executive being coached.
What could you expect from an executive coach?
First and foremost, you can expect to work with a trained professional who is 100% committed to you and your goals. This in itself is a major benefit.
You will develop a greater understanding of yourself and your own habits and patterns.
Ultimately, working with an executive coach can help you take your career, or life to a new level.
How many executive coaching sessions do I need?
The majority of initial coaching contracts tend to be for between 6-12 sessions.
You will need to commit to enough sessions to allow for new practices and habits to develop.
The anatomy of a coaching relationship includes declaration of goals, an understanding of current habits, mindsets and attitudes, the development of new practices and then the integration of the new habits into the client’s way of life.
