Executive Coaching

Much noise about "executive coaching" (eventually) improving business performance and impacting retention of senior leaders. Several "global" companies are including "executive coaching" as a part of the executive remuneration package. While I haven't heard of instances where coaching has not worked, there do not seem to be too many success stories around either.

Personally, the managers and leaders I have coached over the past several years claim to have found value from the association - not as much to improve their performance but more to do with having a sounding board to their ideas and strategies. Is executive coaching something that should be ingrained into the leadership development DNA?
