People have different reasons for looking towards executive coachs for their professional expertise. In a recent blog post, Debra Benton speaks of why most people would look to get an executive coach in ” Instead of a Face-lift, Choose a Career Coach “.
Debra is the President of Debra Brenton and has coached executives for several decades. She says most people’s capabilities are greater than they realize. They simply have never been forced to discover them” Adding that ” Excellence is never an accident”.
I strongly believe that the success of the coaching relationship depends largely upon the mutual respect exhibited by the coach and the client. If this is one-sided- either in favour of the coach or the client- the relationship would not be able to deliver its fullest capability.
