Abstract

Executive skills can be enhanced through coaching, thereby optimizing corporate outcomes. This paper reviews academic work in order to develop an integrative framework for understanding executive development through coaching – with specific reference to information and knowledge flow, control and strategy development. Thus, the paper should advance future research in executive coaching by (i) providing a theoretical framework to scaffold scholarly studies; (ii) expanding the conceptual boundaries of executive coaching; and (iii) offering some suggestions for empirical research studies. To guide future research the framework highlights several selected challenges in global executive development. A discussion of possible criteria of executive coaching effectiveness completes the framework. Practicing executives, practitioner coaches and strategists would benefit from the engagement with key issues with regard to executive coaching within the organization.
