Frequently Asked Questions

Is management coaching the same as executive coaching?

Executive coaching and management coaching are highly similar processes. Whilst management coaching focuses primarily on the general improvement of those in management positions, executive coaching tends to involve a higher level of specialisation with regard to prior experience of the coach – for example, an executive coach with prior experience in finance may be most suited to high level figures in the realm of finance and accounting. Both executive and management coaches work collaboratively with coachees to establish a strong understanding of current behaviours, strengths, and weaknesses, before proceeding to create realistic, manageable goals and a direct course of action. In addition to this, executive coaches often act as a sounding board for their clients, offering experience led advice whilst working towards sustainable improvement. When selecting your coaching package, it is important to consider what type of coaching would be most beneficial to what you hope to gain or achieve throughout the process.

Why is leadership coaching important?

There is an upsetting lack of truly effective leaders within the professional realm at the moment – leadership coaching works to combat this. When implemented correctly, this process has the power to sustainably and positively evolve the mindset, attitude, and abilities of not just one individual – but the teams they lead – resulting in higher levels of engagement, and improved performance across the board – meaning its importance to organisations and teams cannot be understated. With this being said, it is important to select a leadership coach and method willing to tailor their efforts to your individual requirements in order to ensure optimum effectiveness.

Why is executive coaching important?

Executive and management coaching can be hugely important to the professional success of both individuals and organisations – however, when correctly implemented, the value of management coaching goes beyond a simple return on investment. Instilling a renewed sense of self-awareness, and working to establish relevant, valuable goals, management coaching has the power to sustainably and positively evolve the professional mindset, attitude, and abilities of not just one individual – but the teams they lead – resulting in and improved performance and confidence across the board.

Is executive coaching tax deductible?

In order for a coaching service to be fully tax deductible, your coach must advise only on matters of business (as a business consultant would). As management and executive coaches offer guidance regarding personal development within the realm of business, their services are not tax deductible in the vast majority of cases.

This rule is adaptable depending on your exact circumstances, and, as a result, it is highly advisable that those looking to list their coaching as a deductible expense contact HMRC for further, tailored guidance.

What should I look for in an executive or management coach?

Management coaching involves the creation of what should be a dynamic, effective coaching relationship, within which both the coachee and coach should feel comfortable talking candidly, and through which genuine progress and improvements should be made. For these reasons, it is highly important to consider the following when selecting a management or executive coach;
- Chemistry - You and your coach should have a good level of chemistry. Many management coaches, including Grant Cullen, offer free consultation calls, in which both participants in the coaching relationship should be able to gauge chemistry levels and explore previous experience

- Background – clients often find that coaches familiar with their individual sector, or who have worked with clients similar to them in the past will offer highly beneficial services

- Suitable coaching process – prior to selecting a management or executive coach, clients should investigate a coach’s approach, process, and style, in order to develop a clear idea of the way in which they will guide them towards improvement, and to ensure that their process ‘fits’ their working structure

- Qualifications and certifications – coaches with evidence of qualifications, certifications, and awards within the industry are trusted to provide high levels of service. It is often worth enquiring as to the qualifications achieved by a potential coach.

What is the difference between leadership coaching and management/executive coaching?

Though the definitions of both management coaching and leadership coaching vary depending on source, leadership coaching in particular is generally thought of as the process of improving the performance and engagement level achieved by an individual in a position of through the assistance of an experienced specialist, whilst management coaching uses a similar process to improve the performance and mindset of those working within a managerial context. Within both disciplines, coaches may use a number of techniques to assess the behaviours, habits, and mindset of the leader or manager, looking to improve upon strengths, identify weaknesses, and develop a trustworthy, structured, supportive environment, in which the individual or ‘coachee’ may develop a further understanding of their current performance, behaviour, and perception, whilst working to establish and achieve relevant, achievable goals, and take appropriate steps to meet them.

How should I prepare for management/executive coaching?

Your individual circumstances may dictate the exact ways in which you prepare for management or executive coaching, however, there are a number of key factors to keep in mind which may make the process more successful;

- Clients may see more success when they are open to taking on board new perspectives and opinions. Those looking to establish a management or executive coaching relationship should prepare themselves for observing all aspects of their professional performance from a different viewpoint (often a highly valuable process).

- Clients should begin to think about their overall ambitions, strengths, weaknesses, and stumbling blocks. What do you hope to achieve through coaching? How do you hope to achieve this? This consideration can make consultation calls highly productive.

- Clients should be ready to fully commit to coaching lessons, and ready to take on board feedback. In addition to this, they should be prepared to have candid conversations with their coach.
