Executive coaching and career coaching are two different types of coaching. Executive coaching is typically a one-on-one process that provides a 360 degree perspective on the client's career. The focus of executive coaching is to help the client identify their strengths and weaknesses, as well as to create action steps to improve in those areas. Executive coaches provide guidance on how to manage work relationships with bosses, peers, or subordinates. They also help clients create plans for careers that include new skills or a change in responsibilities at the company. Career coaches are more focused on helping clients find new careers or jobs that match their skills and interests. Career coaches often have an advisory role for executives who want to change jobs but don't know how to do it without burning bridges with their current employer.
