Executive Coaching

Executive Coaching Pays Off

Executive Coaching helps individual executives achieve improved performance and accelerated leadership development.  Robert Wiley brings to the process an in-depth understanding of business people. He has successfully coached a broad range of senior executives across numerous industries and cultures. 

Executive coaching has emerged as the leadership development process of choice for executives during the past decade. And for good reason. A recent survey of Fortune 1,000 executives who had personally utilized executive coaching services yielded some impressive results:

  • Six in ten executives said they had achieved a monetary payoff in improved business results that exceeded six times their investment in coaching
  • Three in ten executives reported a resulting boost in sales, productivity and profits of $500,000 to $1,000,000 

Coaching Benefits

In addition to the impact on financial performance, a large majority of executive coaching clients indicated additional benefits that resulted from the process:

  • Improved relationships with peers, bosses and direct reports
  • Higher morale and productivity among direct reports
  • Increased personal job satisfaction and commitment to their organization

Coaching provides the unique advantage of a solution tailored to an executive’s specific needs and schedule. Since coaching occurs in the executive’s natural work environment and in connection with their actual work challenges, improved results rapidly occur. 

Issues Addressed

Executive Coaching helps individuals better address key challenges and needs that all executives face at some point in their careers:

  • Rapidly mastering the leadership challenges of a new job assignment
  • Building leadership competencies that are needed for future challenges and smooth career progression
  • Quickly resolving performance gaps before they threaten to derail individual success
