Executive Coaching Is Not One Size Fits All

Pick the Right Coach for the Win

So, what is more beneficial: Investing in your millennial who shows early signs of being a strong leader in the future or empowering your seasoned veteran who seems ready for a leadership opportunity? Both can be a worthwhile investment with the right executive coach. A well-trained coach is one who understands that millennials want to accelerate quickly and need direct feedback to move forward, and veterans are eager to be introspective in order to grow.
