Executive Coaching is to coach… executives.
If you coach country presidents (it would not do him/her any harm!), government people from any level, doctors, engineers, entrepreneurs, millionaires, billionaires, sportsmen, astronauts, housewives, students, retired people, divorced people, people with handicap, unemployed, etc. etc. etc. the coaching fundamental is the same: ontological.
The conversation you have with each one is different, this being correlated to the context, but the tools are the same – ontological – and in the end it all boils down to two things: authenticity or lack of it.
All that people need to do to have their lives work is to experiment and become masterful in changing perspectives (points of view), and no amount of intellectual gobbledygook is going to achieve that, no matter how great it may sound.
Here is an example of what I mean by changing perspective.
If you think that a “cow gives milk” it is a perspective from which you look at things, and the actions you take or don’t take are totally correlated to that perspective.
If you are willing to consider that the cow does not give milk, that the only thing it gives is manure, that it is YOU who takes the milk, the emotions and actions would be completely different; one such action could be that you get off the “fence” and start “milking the cow”, for example.
It is the same in life; you have only what you take, generate, create and do not have what you expect just siting on the fence complaining, moaning, suffering and waiting for “someday” when…. you get a promotion, your staff will respect you and work responsibly, your Country HR tramp does not humiliate you in the face of the corporate leaders, etc.

Coaching is a very special conversation. It is a conversation that brings clarity of mind, and leaves the participant to the coaching in a totally different space. This “different space” is given by a change, shift in perspective, and all limitation we experience in our lives are given by perception.
There is no “good” or “bad” perception; there are just perceptions that work for us (when we get the freedom to express ourselves, our creativity, our love and happiness), and perceptions that do not work for us (when we feel jealousy, envy, lack of power, lack of aliveness, etc..).
The results are always correlated to the commitment for the declared outcome, and the integrity with which the client goes on to do what needs to be done.
People who have no authentic commitment to work for what they say they want to achieve, should not engage in coaching.
Also, you cannot coach using books or following mechanically lists of questions to ask, or all kinds of weird evaluation systems, but even these methods, in the absence of ontological training can give results, if – and this is a big ‘if’ – the coach is authentic.
The rest is just the commitment and work of the person who requested the coaching.
Also, one does not need coaching because something is wrong with their life, their performance at work, their relationships, etc. – one can choose to do coaching if one is committed to producing results beyond what is predictable
