The coaching relationship is built on partnership and trust. Confidentiality is absolute and must be accompanied by respect for the employer along with its mission and values. Individuals being coached vary greatly: new leaders, high potentials, seasoned executives, rainmakers/high performers, etc. Coaching is always an investment in highly valued professionals whether to enhance performance, resolve conflict, eliminate barriers to productivity or align presence and professional demonstration with the level of the position or the representation of the company image. Coaching is focused on development and excellence. It is always about communication enhancement and alignment of impact with intention. Incorporating wide-ranging feedback is a critical element of executive coaching. Cynthia Leeds Friedlander ensures confidential anonymous gathering and delivery of 360-degree feedback that is done in partnership with the person being coached. The feedback is obtained through customized direct interview and the feedback is broken down and co-mingled to assure anonymity of provider and keep the focus on the feedback.
