What is an executive coach?

A coach stands with you, helps you, and encourages you, and challenges you to reach your outer limits. A coach helps you identify and work through self-imposed limitations so that you can step into the best version of yourself as a person first and then as a leader. A coach is skilled in listening, asking questions, acting as a thinking partner, holding up a mirror to blind spots, and helping you to map your future. A coach helps you think about the big picture, the little picture, the changes you want to implement, how you work with your team and peers, how you communicate, and how your actions impact the people around you, thereby impacting you.
