As executive coaching becomes an increasingly popular activity used by HRD specialists for a variety of developmental purposes, a systematic review of the tools and techniques used in executive coaching is lacking. While there are core coaching tools and techniques used across a variety of coaching situations, there may be as many tools and techniques for coaching as there are coaches. The purpose of this interactive session is to explore some of the most commonly used and powerful coaching tools and techniques in relation to the purposes and stages in the coaching process for which they are used. Stages in the coaching process, goals for coaching, and criteria for evaluating various coaching tools and techniques will be discussed.
