Executive Coaching: An Emerging Role for Management Consultants
AbstractBoth executive coaching and management consulting are relatively new disciplines, early in their development as professions. They share ambiguous social status, lack of clearly defined and agreed-upon professional standards or accreditation criteria, and low barriers to entry. A broad range of tasks are undertaken in the name of consulting and the professional identity of management consultants is continuously evolving. This experience-based paper explores how the professional identity of management consultants incorporates or includes a role as coach, with particular respect to work with organizational change interventions.
