Black Enterprise, Diversity and Coaching, text version, highlights:
According to Sherpa Executive Coaching, a firm that provides research on executive coaching and is based in Cincinnati, OH, executive coaching should not be confused with a mentor, consultant, trainer or life coach. Their job is to assist companies or individuals in leadership development, or a specific career challenge, such as honing in on a skill or going through a transition.
According to Sherpa’s 2009 survey, out of 1,500 participants consisting of human resource professionals and coaching clients, 87 percent consider the value of executive coaching to be ‘somewhat high’ or ‘very high.’ If you are interested in seeking out your own career coach, first determine the area in which you need assistance, such as restructuring your résumé, reaching a specific goal, or honing a specific skill like interviewing? Before selecting a coach, you should interview several individuals to determine the right fit.
