Executive coaching is still relatively new in India. The Centre for Executive Education at the Indian School of Business , one of India’s leading business schools set up in collaboration with Wharton and Kellogg , organised an interesting event recently.
It was a program on executive coaching for those responsible for coaching. The program was conducted by Marshall Goldsmith-ranked by the Wall Street Journal as one of the top 10 executive educators.
Usually CEO coaching focuses on three aspects- strategy, organisational change, and behavioural coaching. The Programme at the ISB concentrated only on behavioural change. It aimed towards positive and measurable behaviour improvement of the participants, by identifying specific behaviours to improve upon and choosing concrete methods of change.
The program reaffirms the increasing importance being given to executive coaching by corporate India.
