Executive Coaching
vs Consulting.

What’s the difference?

There is much confusion about what Executive Coaching is…

And isn’t.

Talking blog

Coach Training Alliance provides International Coaching Federation (ICF) approved coach specific training that teaches you how to apply coaching methods in this type of environment.

Executive Coaching does not “fix” people. It is rare that coaching can be deployed to “fix” those that deem to be in need of a quick change by their manager.

This type of coaching can provide dramatic short term impact for companies. But the reality is that it will take from 6-12 months of quality coaching to manifest sustainable changes.

Those that tell you that it can be done with quick consulting sessions are selling themselves rather than sharing a reality.

Executive Coaching is about individual planning, goal setting, and achievement in the context of leadership performance. It’s also about personal discovery and enlightenment. It is about realizing one’s full potential, which in turn, benefits the organization.

Coach Training Alliance encourages leaders, managers and coaches alike to commit to a path of lifelong learning and continuing education. Coaching skills are never the only tools on the belt, just some of the more critical ones to insuring growth and success of your team.

Our coaching programs not only encourage a disciplined approach to coaching, but also the marketing and business development skills to expand yours and your organization’s capabilities.

Is your organization struggling with any of the following challenges?

Here is how Coach Training Alliance can help you with…
