Being considered “business savvy” isn’t nearly as simple as it used to be. The bar is constantly being raised while at the same time employees want to have great job satisfaction and a good work-life balance. The mix of all these competing tensions points to a vital need for executive coaching. Most organizations benefit from executive coaching, and there’s often a compelling business case to be made for it.
Executive coaching not only helps your existing executives, but can help you hire better for future needs.
Committing to a comprehensive leadership development process can lead to powerful competitive advantages, but the process will challenge participants to stretch and grow. Executive coaching can be a strong business imperative for top-level executives and HR leaders, yet there is still, in most organizations, a wide gap between what executives are expected to accomplish and the resources available to help them do so.
Top leadership must develop both inner-core attributes (capability, commitment, and connectedness) and outer-core skills and competencies to achieve all that is expected of them. Executive coaching helps organizations bridge the gap between what is expected of executives and the resources available for helping them do so. And finally, executive coaching equips today’s executives with the tools they must have to produce consistent excellence in themselves, their immediate teams, and the organization as a whole.

Mentoring is a system of semi-structured guidance whereby one person shares their knowledge, skills and experience to assist others to progress in their own lives and careers. Mentors need to be readily accessible and prepared to offer help as the need arises – within agreed bounds.
Mentoring can be a short-term arrangement until the original reason for the partnership is fulfilled (or ceases), or it can last many years.
Mentoring is more than ‘giving advice’, or passing on what your experience was in a particular area or situation. It’s about motivating and empowering the other person to identify their own issues and goals, and helping them to find ways of resolving or reaching them – not by doing it for them, or expecting them to ‘do it the way I did it’, but by understanding and respecting different ways of working.
Mentoring is not counselling or therapy – though the mentor may help the mentee to access more specialised avenues of help if it becomes apparent that this would be the best way forward.
The Benefits of Mentoring
For mentees, some key benefits of business mentoring include:
- Exposure to new ideas and ways of thinking
- Advice on developing strengths and overcoming weaknesses
- Guidance on professional development and advancement
- Increased visibility and recognition within the company
- The opportunity to develop new skills and knowledge
