What is Executive Coaching?  And it's not about playing a sport...

Coaching at one time was considered the answer to toxic behaviour in the workplace - a specialist who would come in and 'fix' bad behavior, or, was seen as a perk for senior Leaders.  In the non-work environment the idea of a 'Life Coach' meant that you were visiting a soothsayer who was going to offer a mix of horoscope and crystal ball reading to get a person on the 'right' track. 


So if it's not these, what is it? Come along to the Webinar on 2/4 to learn more. Shona Burns, an International Coaching Federation (ICF) accredited coach, takes the mystic out of this world of Coaching.  Understand how it differs from Mentorship, and Consulting and experience some of the realities of what Coaching is.
