Every crisis calls for great leadership. Today, a generation of leaders is being severely tested.
One bad decision, even one bad attitude in top management can cost people their jobs.
That’s why executive coaching is an essential development tool for leaders at every level. Each year, the Sherpa Executive Coaching Survey offers insight into leadership development and executive coaching. For the fourth year in a row, the survey has gathered information from coaches themselves and from those who hire them.
Ideally, executive coaching creates positive changes in business behavior in a limited time frame. But coaches bring wildly different levels of training, skill and experience to the job. Selecting the right coach is important. Choices must be made: Who gets a coach? How are services delivered? How much should this cost?
The Sherpa Executive Coaching Survey helps people make those decisions and teaches them how to measure return on investment. The 2009 survey was conducted by Sherpa Coaching, an executive coach training and certification institute in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, and sponsored by the executive education programs at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas and the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia.
The Sherpa Executive Coaching Survey is unique in three important ways:
1. The survey focuses on executive coaching, with an open invitation for global participation.
2. The fourth annual survey allows clear identification of industry trends.
3. Complete results are released rapidly, at no charge, for the betterment of the profession.
Since this survey deals with executive coaching, any findings or response rates attributed to coaches come from executive coaches only. In some cases, we provide responses and data from life and personal coaches. These findings are always clearly identified as such.
