Its objective is the achievement of one or more development goals designed to help employees to expand their capability to perform the responsibilities of their current role, and prepare them to be better able to handle the challenges of their next and subsequent assignments. It includes facilitating the performance, learning, and development of another. The coach may be internal or external to the organization.

    Employee Enrichment and corporate culture may or may not be the result of Executive Coaching. However, standards, systems, policy, and procedure must support your program, and the program must be measurable with defined systems for sustainability
