United Arab Emirates –As more companies in Saudi Arabia invest in building effective leaders, Ashridge Executive Education reports a growing demand for third party certified Executive Coaches. An accredited Executive Coach is certified to work with leaders, executives, managers, business owners and other professionals in a senior position.
Erik de Haan, the Director of Ashridge’s Centre for Coaching, says coaches are required to understand and subscribe to a code of coaching ethics and principles that define views and expectations of executive coaching, and this is what accreditation ensures.
“Since Executive Coaching is customized to suit personal objectives, the best part of the programme is the measurable results it provides in a relatively short period of time. Our experience of working with senior national leaders in the region highlights the power of accelerated development through Executive Coaching,” he adds.
Ashridge is recognized worldwide as a center of excellence for Executive Coaching.
Yolande Basson, a certified Executive Coach at Ashridge, says; “The accreditation process for coaches involves assessment of skills, knowledge, understanding and experience in Executive Coaching. It is conducted via assessment of written work, reflections on the coach’s practice, interviews about recent coaching experiences, along with assessment of recordings and transcripts of coaching sessions.”
