Executive Coaching

Executive Coaching

BCG’s executive coaching offering helps leaders meet the challenges of today’s increasingly complex world and drive transformational change—for their people, customers, investors, partners, and society.

We are asking more than ever of our leaders. Success today requires more than a good strategy and a well-developed execution plan. It requires leaders to think and act in new ways: to learn, anticipate, and adapt. Today’s leaders need to be generative—able to reenergize and increase the value they deliver for their people, customers, partners, investors, communities, and themselves. That’s where BCG’s Executive Coaching programs make a difference.

How BCG Works with Executive Coaching Clients

BCG helps senior leaders and leadership teams drive transformational change and set the foundation for long-term impact and value creation. Research shows that coaching senior leaders can increase the likelihood of transformation success by more than 70%. We work in lockstep with organizations’ broader change initiatives, and our programmatic approach allows us to coach multiple leaders around a shared North Star. Moreover, this approach enables continuous feedback loops and rapid interventions.

We view every coaching engagement as a true partnership between leader and coach that provides a safe, confidential, and deep level of support when leaders need it most. Our coaches are former C-suite executives who have been in the same shoes as the leaders they coach. They have felt the same pressures, made the same tough decisions, and learned from the same mistakes. BCG’s executive coaches come with a deep understanding of strategic and operational context and can help other leaders deliver on their most pressing business or organization objectives.

We work with our clients’ most senior leaders in two ways:
