In July of 2022, Emma Jacob wrote a compelling article in the Financial Times called Why an executive coach is now a must-have for CEOs. In the article, Emma described CEOs realizing the importance of having an executive coach and how it helps them improve their leadership abilities, helps them make better decisions, and supports personal and professional development.

“Executive coaching is a one-on-one individualized process to benefit the leader and his/her organization. Working with goals defined by both the leader and the organization, a qualified and trusted coach uses various coaching methods and feedback data to develop the leader’s capacity for current and future leadership. This coaching is guided by a coaching partnership to achieve maximum impact and the highest level of learning.”
