Jordan believes that the most effective executive coaches provide a mixture of coaching, consulting and mentoring. Similar to other types of coaches, they ask powerful questions to help executives identify and articulate who they are and what they stand for (their why). And, they help executives design their future.
They are also willing to share their deep expertise in business, leadership, human development, psychology, etc. When an executive doesn’t know what they don’t know, these master coaches are able to teach models, processes, and skills. They do not tell their clients what to do. They provide the
information and options to help their clients make more effective decisions and choices.
