Consulting

The Consulting approach will allow moving forward short term actions and getting things done.  Consulting is rational and the intervention is organized via a specific project.  The objective is to get short term results taking into account the emotions, the behavior and the relationship between people.

Coaching

Is working towards a longer term result.  It is a process with the active participation of the top executive.  The main requirement for effective executive coaching is the creation of a “safe space” which is the basis for a relationship of mutual trust and respect. It is the task of the coach to understand the real messages of the client and to understand the underlying emotions.  A coach has to be aware not to take action based on rational facts.  A coach carries out a psychological and participative investigation of the behaviour of the executive.

"Executive coaching is defined as a helping relationship formed between a client who has managerial authority and responsibility in an organization and a consultant who uses a wide variety of behavioural techniques and methods to assist the client in achieving a mutually identified set of goals to improve his or her professional performance and personal satisfaction and consequently to improve the effectiveness of the client’s organization."
(R. Killburg, Executive Coaching, American Psychological Association, 2002)

"The essence of leadership is change and the courage to realize it."
