CoachSource polled nearly 100 organizations, several hundred external coaches, internal coaches and even 60-plus executives for our study Executive Coaching for Results.
We asked: “How do you feel about how much coaches challenge leaders?” The results are reflected below.
Eighty percent of executives who had worked with a coach indicated that their coach challenged them appropriately. This is great news for coaches, as it seems like we are hitting the mark in this always elusive balance.
In fact, executives represented the most optimistic group in this category, compared to external coaches (72% agreed with “coaches challenge leaders appropriately”), internal coaches (61%) and organizational respondents (those managing coaching, 57%). So executives are more pleased with our level of challenge than any of us practitioners are!Download Article 500 Club
