Executive coaching provides an honest evaluation of the leader's skills and tells him where he can improve as a leader.

New ideas come up through executive coaching. That happens when the leader talks through ideas with someone who is not part of his program. The outsider can provide a unique perspective and fresh insight into the ideas of the leader.

The existing culture of the organization can improve through executive coaching. Being too close to a situation can prevent the leader from seeing areas that need change. Therefore, an outsider can assess the situation and give tactical solutions that can improve the organizational culture. Changing culture is not easy, but identifying common behaviors, policies or traits that may be promoting a bad culture in the organization is a good starting point.

An executive coach can help clarify, expand and articulate the vision of the leader. The leader can have a great idea but is unable to articulate the thought. Executive coaching helps rehash the leader's ideas and helps him formulate his opinions.
