Executive coaching is about coaching the executive of the organization. This is where the name derives from.

So, If we look into executive coaching from the functional point of view, it is a systemic approach towards personal development with strong focus on professional accomplishments, which are aligned with the purpose and mission of the organization. The highlights here are systemic approach, personal development, and alignment with the bigger systems within which the client operates.

So, executive coaching implies a collaborative, tailored, trusting, and confidential relationship between a coach and a client in an executive leadership position within an organization. It aims to help clients succeed further in the workplace through facilitating greater vision and positive change.  It also expands vision and creates a clearer strategy in the mindset of the leader of the organization. This triggers and eventually results in greater organizational effectiveness.


Please describe your coaching niche: executive coaching.


Usually, people and organizations opt for hiring executive coaches to help them in their journey towards finding the answers they struggle to get from external sources.

The answers they are looking for are from different layers. Mostly, they approach executive coaches to reclaim their inner balance and purpose, understand which direction to take next, get to the next level of success and effectiveness, meet organizational goals, identify what changes their inner selves need to undergo to improve, and boost the organization they lead.

They approach a coach when there is a feeling or a very specific need within the organization’s leadership to find creative solutions and ways to grow, and to revisit and revive their mission. 


Why are people hiring executive coaches?

My clients come from diverse industries and different countries. I work with leaders and executives from the private sector, government, and international organizations.

I also work with founders of startups. They are both current and future leaders, and coaching is an excellent tool to help them shape that reality from their very start.

In terms of challenges, nowadays we deal with extremely high levels of stress. Everything evolves at a very high speed. It is difficult for clients to slow down in this race and find the right innovative and creative solution and discover the necessary insight. In my opinion, coaching is best positioned here to help them in this quest.

Currently, when COVID factor has and is still changing the operational reality for everyone and everything, it becomes more and more clear that directive management in organizations does not work anymore, if it ever worked. That’s why the most advanced leaders resort to coaching rather than commanding.  

So they start using coaching approaches and tools in their everyday management.

Who are your coaching clients, and what challenges do they usually bring to your coaching?

My advice would be to look for an experienced and qualified coach with a strong portfolio, but more importantly, someone you can relate to, someone with whom you can connect intuitively right from the start. This should be a person you feel is fully present, is “totally yours” within the time period spent together, concentrated on you, your topic, your case. At the same time, the one who will challenge you. Who Will become sort of a Strategic Sparring Partner.

I am a strong believer in coaching as one of the most effective solution-focused approaches in today’s reality. It helps get closer to the core essence, discover “new self” full of potential and capable of bringing in positive transformation in all walks of life.


What would be your advice for someone who
is looking to get coached from a coach in the executive coaching?

One of the biggest wins for me was boosting the coaching industry in Armenia through providing professional support and creating opportunities for the new coaches to grow.
I initiated this last year with the help of my colleagues from Europe.


What is your biggest win in your career so far,
and what did you learn from it?

Picture a sportsman who is preparing for the Olympics and who decides he or she is not good enough for the gold medal. At that very moment, that person sets limits to that opportunity to win.

Surely, when one makes a decision to go for a “gold medal”, it is followed by intensive work. Only then can the victory become a reality. And, even if, after all that courage walking towards the dream and all that hard work, that person does not achieve that goal, they are still a hero because they pushed their inner limits.

So, my biggest lesson of this challenging year and overall – Always expand yourself from inside, and give your dream a chance to come true! 


What is an example of a lesson you learned
