Effective executive coaching requires a commitment from the sponsoring organisation which includes supporting the goals of the program, signalling that the coaching is valued and that the effort is worth it.  It is always best practice for coaching to be paid by the sponsoring organisation as this sets up the right accountabilities for the coach, the coachee and the sponsor.  

Good quality behavioual preference (personallity) assessments are extremely useful in guiding development.  These are superior to many reports typically used during team-building activities and provide a deep, evidence-based and defensible starting point to executive development.  A thorough executive assessment package gives the added ability to tackle deeper issues and is highly valued by executives in senior programs.  A typical assessment involves behavioural preference, values, motivations and is backed by professional feedback and a validation process. This process is conducted within the first month of coaching and referred to in future sessions as issues arise.  Some organisations have selected their own assessments and these can be integrated where they are of the correct quality.  

Yes, there is a clear curriculum that covers FOUNDATION skill-sets that are common to all managers and leaders.  That said, effective coaching programs tackle organisational challenges as soon as possible.  By focussing on the real and pressing issues, the organisation derives quick wins and in some cases this includes clearly identified and rapid capability improvements.  The coach prioritises curriculum items that are most relevent to the current challenges faced by the coachee and brings forward the right knowledge, methods and techniques in a just-in-time approach whilst ensuring that major milestones are attained.
