Understanding the Concept
All coaching is, taking a player where he can’t take himself 
.Bill McCartneyExecutive coaching is not new.Executive coaching as a profession started in the 1980s. Then, itcentered more on business improvement. Now, this profession hasdeveloped to cover a lot of areas from helping managers choose theright career options to managing difficult personal or professionalrelationships.
But what is coaching all about?
As per The International Coach Federation (ICF):"Coaching is an on-going partnership that helps clientsproduce fulfilling results in their personal and professionallives. Through the process of coaching, clients deepen theirlearning, improve their performance, and enhance theirquality of life. Beginning with the clients' desires, coachinguses reporting, exploring, and a consistent commitment tomove the client forward. Coaching accelerates the clients'progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice.Coaching concentrates on where clients are today and whatthey are willing to do to get where they want to betomorrow."
If this was too much to grasp, let’s simplify.
 Coaching involves a professional partnership between a coach and
the client. Coaches listen to their client’s problems or concerns, and
then provide coaching through which the client determines whatsteps to take to overcome his or her problems and move ahead.Coaches do not give advice, nor do they offer therapy. They simplyact like a catalyst to help people achieve individual goals.Through executive coaching, managers, business owners andexecutives alike get help in making the right moves, which they arenot able to make on their own.

This does not mean that no one can work out things on their own. Itrather means the opposite.Everyone has some limitations, which directly or indirectly affect anumber of areas in his or her life or how he or she looks at differentsituations in life and in business.These limitations or weaknesses, whether mental, emotional orpsychological, create barriers and hold up personal development.This is when an Executive Coach comes in. The process of coachinghelps people break those barriers themselves and pave the way toachieving their goals.A number of people correlate the work of a Coach to that of atherapist.
It’s
not the same.While a therapist focuses on analyzing your past actions and gettingto the root of the problem, an Executive Coach concentrates onhelping you to frame the right steps in future to achieve yourindividual goals.A therapist might offer therapy and advice. A Coach does notnormally do this.If they do, they step across the line and into c
onsultancy. That’s not
to say that you cannot offer advice. I frequently do. All I aminterested in is helping my clients in whichever way possible!A very good analogy of what an Executive Coach actually does is if we compare it to that of a Personal Fitness Trainer.Consider you are joining a gym. Your fitness trainer will first askyou what you want to achieve. Whether you want to:Lose weight?Lose fat?Build muscles?Build endurance?Increase stamina?The trainer will then see where you stand now in relation to yourgoal.
