There may be an overlap between Executive Coaching, Consulting, Facilitation, and Training. However, they are not the same. A few fundamental differences include:
- Consulting and Training engagements are delivered most frequently to companies, departments, or teams, Coaching to individuals or groups, and Facilitation to teams.
- Consulting and Training are frequently project-based, geared towards resolving challenges or realizing particular opportunities. Coaching and Facilitation are relationship-centered and focus on growth and development.
- Consulting and Training draw on more technical knowledge and expertise while Coaching and Facilitation rely more on interpersonal dynamics.
Each process has its place. They are applied most effectively in combination with one another in complementary ways and can also be deployed in separate stand-alone engagements to match your specific needs.
