While executive team coaching can significantly accelerate a team’s ability to operate more effectively, it is a methodology that is highly influenced by the style of the coach, the tools employed in its service, and the culture of the team to which it is applied. Therefore, teams must target the results they want to achieve and carefully consider which approaches will best suit their needs. To that end, this paper examines the process of executive team coaching, identifying the factors that have the greatest impact on success and providing a theoretical framework that has proven effective in practice. With this knowledge, executive teams can better determine whether and how to apply the methodology, and enter into a coaching process with greater intention.
