Today, we are bringing our focus back to executive coaching! I am excited to take a deep dive into some of the biggest issues an executive coach might face around how an organization views the coach. How can we align needs of the sponsor organization with the needs of our client? My guest today is going to dive in with us to create organizational alignment.
