Executive Coaching

Executive Coaching has become a significant part of Executive Development in recent years. While once considered a way of remedial development for failing executives, executive coaching has become a means of enriching top performers and of developing new talent.

Emotional Intelligence

Executive Coaching often provides competent business executives with the resources to manage the "human side" of leading people and building teams to accomplish business goals. The competencies to deal with the human side of business are often described as Emotional Intelligence.

Goleman describes emotional intelligence as the capacity for recognizing our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves, for managing emotions well in ourselves and in our relationships. Goleman's model of Emotional Intelligence has 20 competencies grouped in four domains.

Self Awareness Social Awareness
Emotional Self -Awareness
Accurate Self-Assessment
Self Confidence
Organizational Awareness
Service Orientation
Self Management Social Skills
Self Control
Achievement Orientation
Leading Others
Developing Others
Building Bonds
Teamwork and Collaboration
Conflict Management

Goleman and the Hay Group Emotional Competence Model

Research on emotional intelligence consistently shows that high job performers score higher on measures of emotional intelligence. The research shows these trends across diverse jobs, such as software engineers or sales people. And conversely people with poor performance that leads to job termination often had lower emotional intelligence.

Unlike intellectual intelligence, which is considered fairly fixed, emotional intelligence is also considered a set of behavioral competencies that can be learned and developed. Executive coaching often uses emotional intelligence assessment and competency development as a core feature of the coaching process.
