Coaching has been widely recognized as a tool to create peak performers. Hiring a coach was more or less a rare thing some twenty years ago, but now it has become very common to hire a executive coach when you have bigger goals for life. As per a survey conducted in 2004, it was observed that 86% of companies used coaching as a tool to sharpen the skills of individuals who have been identified as future organizational leaders.
To understand the concept of executive coaching, it is always better to start with the definition of coaching.
