Method

When you have individual people who are having difficulty in managing to adapt to change, then hire an executive coach to help them through this time.

Example

An executive used to a command-and-control environment where people did what he said without question finds himself in a more 'empowered' environment, where he is supposed to be supportive and trust others more. The company, realizing his difficulty with this, get him a personal coach for six months. Together, he and his coach explore his deeper motivations and beliefs about other people, and find practical ways to change these.

Discussion

Coaches have the time and skills to understand the individual person and uncover their internal problems which are causing them problems.

In many ways, coaches are actually therapists. However, in many business circles, it is not acceptable to be in therapy. The metaphor of 'coaching' a more acceptable euphemism.

This is an expensive method, so it is usually only afforded to senior executives.
