Executive coaching is increasingly seen as a significant way of contributing to an organisation’s change and management development agenda. In particular, it is one of the key approaches through which the leadership of complex organisations can be developed.
Executive coaching provides a confidential sounding board for senior managers who want to review sensitive issues, such as their own leadership and management style, or the effectiveness of their relationships with some of their key stakeholders – direct reports, management team, colleagues and customers – and explore the potential impact on business results. The process also aims to focus on the wider work-related agenda; notably on changes in organisational culture, teamwork, and supporting people in successfully handling their own particular management and leadership challenges.
A key belief that underpins all Abu Dhabi University Knowledge Group’s (ADUKG) coaching relationships is that they should be tailored to the specific needs and requirements of the individual and the organisation. We use a range of different techniques from the fields of coaching, counselling, psychotherapy and organisational development. ADUKG coaches pay attention to their relationship with both the coaching client and the client organisation.
