What Coaching Is Not

Therapy
Executive Coaching is results-oriented and focused on what is working well and what could be immediately improved. We don’t need to delve into a client’s past. We are more interested in how to enhance the effectiveness of a client now and in the long term.

Friendship
Executive Coaching, although open, honest, supportive, and emotionally safe, is about objective truth-telling and removing blockages so individuals can consciously change and become effective.  Friends are forgiving; coaches are constructively critical.

Consulting / Mentoring
Consulting and Mentoring have the perspective of advising others as the experts who have “been there, done that.”  R│L Executive Coaches believe that clients are naturally creative, resourceful, and whole and we facilitate the client’s own self-discovery.
