Self-Esteem – Executive Coaching Research Study

August 06, 2011  |   Executive Coaching Blog   |     |   0 Comment

There is very little research on the topic of self-esteem in executive coaching. Yet it would appear that although self-esteem may not be the main area for executive coaching, it is often an underlying issue with which Executive Coaches find themselves working. This phenomenological research study by Tricia Brady the aim is to understand the experience of Executive Coaches who have had to work on the subject of self-esteem with their clients.


Four key findings emerge: in ‘contracting’ meetings, self-esteem is rarely the presenting issue; executive coaches find themselves operating somewhere between executive coaching and therapy; the process of coaching self-esteem requires the client to embark on a courageous journey of transition; and the Executive Coach’s ‘unconditional positive regard’ creates an environment that allows clients to generate their own self-esteem.
