Marketing Text The current economic environment presents many challenges that sometimes require an excellent management of the resources available to the leader of the organization. These challenges can lead managers to face with dilemmas or frustrated. In this line, executives have been looking for executive coaching when they felt that a change in behavior, either for themselves or members of their teams, could make a significant difference in the success of the organization over the long term. Therefore, the essence of Executive Coaching has helped leaders to find the answers to their dilemmas and challenges through the use of a series of tools that have allowed coaches to know themselves and thus to transform their knowledge and skills in results for the organization.
