Executive Development


How much are companies (particularly) in the public sector spending on executive development and what kind of interventions are they using?

  1. Coaching is one option
    This is a good question. For many people, particularly those in senior positions, attending a development course may be impractical, inappropriate and not cost effective. Yet, such people still need support and help solving problems, or finding a way forward when difficult decisions need to be made.

    At Glasstap, we’ve recently started offering a professional coaching service, working with a coach with over 20 years experience. We have found that for executives and senior managers, having the oppotunity to talk through their needs and plan a way forward with a skilled facilitator on an individual basis is often a productive and cost effective development approach.

  2. Some suggestions
    We are looking at the programmes on offer from MaST, The Work Foundation and Cranfield. In addition to one off seminars by Benchmark (Top Peters Seminar) etc.

    I’ve also used coaching very successfully at a senior level – try Valerie Apps at The Lifecoaching Company, 020 8651 0347


  3. Coaching recommendation
    Further to Annah’s comments I can also recommend the Lifecoaching company (called the full potential group) for coaching purposes. They have a great approach and I would highly recommend Kate Woodward who works as a coach.
