How Does Executive Coaching Help With CPD?
Consolidating and Embed Training And Development
Training is a popular way most professionals use to maintain their CPD. Training might be in the form of courses or online. Sometimes it might even be through reading articles. Often the outcomes of the training, especially when it is done alone, will remain open ended, with no clear follow through or change in behaviour.
Executive Coaching allows for the training to be considered and then applied, embedding the training. We often see Companies invest tens of thousands of pounds in their employees training, but the don’t invest the hundreds of pounds in Executive Coaching, which could help the training become embeded. Executive Coaching can prove that recall can be boosted by a factor of six compared with typical training.
Exploring Complex Areas
Executive Coaching is particularly helpful to explore areas that are complex and / or situational. As an example, Leadership, is highly dependent upon the environment, including the team being led. It would be impossible to write a training manual to cover every possible situation to improve leadership, yet with Executive Coaching, the individual can develop the most appropriate leadership style for whatever the situation throws up.
