Helping Executives Become Agile Leaders: Coaching the Executive Leader – Michael Hamman

As any professional Agile coach can tell you, coaching executive leaders is different than most other type of coaching. With executives, you are not only a facilitator of their inner process of discovery—as is true with any other professional coaching process—but you are also their “disorienting” partner, provoking them into new ways of thinking. You are their thinking partner, which means you share models, frameworks, concepts and ideas that inform them and expand their repertoire of ideas. You’re their truth-teller, giving them feedback that no one else will, reminding them of what they are committed to even if they want to run away. Finally, you are their mentor: teaching them about and guiding them through the nuances of enterprise and leadership Agility.
