How does executive coaching differ from therapy?

  • Executive coaching is a problem-solving process with identifiable end points, structured with hard and fast, measurable goals in mind, while therapy frequently is not.

  • Unlike therapy, coaching relies on third-party input in addressing behavior challenges.

  • Coaching strives to make specific cognitive adjustments in thinking that are determined at the beginning of the process.

  • Coaching is mindful of the culture and goals of the organization as well as those of the individual.

  • Finally, individuals tend to seek out therapy in the case of personal unhappiness or distress, executive coaching is a process that benefits even the most successful individual.

  • As with sports coaching, even the best athletes look to coaches throughout their career for constant refinements, improvements and valuable outside perspective.
