Major League Executive Coaches
We all know the most famous major league coaches past and present–Phil Jackson, George Halas, and Vince Lombardi to name a few, but how do we identify top Executive Coaches? Here are several on my personal “Who’s Who in Executive Coaching” list:
First on my list is Bill Campbell, coach to many tech giants like Steve Jobs and the founders of Google and Twitter. Watch this video and learn more about his transition from sports coaching to executive coaching. Be sure to open the link in a new window if you are viewing this through Blackboard.
Next is Marshall Goldsmith, author of several popular books on leadership and coaching. He has coached execs at major organizations and has been named by The Wall Street Journal as one of the top 10 executive educators and by Forbes as one of 5 most respected executive coaches.
Steven Berglas made a successful transition from medicine to executive coaching and has written a number of very well received books. He has a diverse client list that includes top business execs and award-winning professional athletes, Grammy winners, Oscar winners, and internationally-ranked chess Grandmasters.
Help me extend this list by adding your top pick. Add a comment to tell us the name of a coach–executive, life, career, or organizational–that you think has merit. If possible, include a link to his or her website.
