All top athletes have specialized coaches.

Even amateur athletes have coaches supporting them through every practice and game.

Why doesn’t every executive have that kind of support?

We ask that question in the second half of our two-part conversation with experienced executive coaches Katharine Halpin, Dr. George Watts, and Brian Underhill, Ph.D.

In this episode, we explore:

  • What a typical coaching session feels like
  • What Hall of Fame coaches are doing differently
  • Pros and cons of developing an internal coaching team
  • What executive coaching might look like in 20 years 

Katharine Halpin is the Founder and CEO of The Halpin Companies and author of Alignment for Success.

Dr. George Watts is the Chairman of TLT Coaching and co-author of Becoming a Strategic Leader.

Brian Underhill, Ph.D. is the Founder and CEO of CoachSource, LLC and author of Executive Coaching for Results: The Definitive Guide to Developing Organizational Leaders.
