Designed to help strong, effective leaders be even stronger and more effective.

Hosted by HERS and Academic Search, Inc., Executive Coaching Circles adds a new, frequently requested service—executive coaching.  The Executive Coaching Circles Program was designed to help strong, effective leaders be stronger and more effective.   

What is executive coaching?  

Executive coaching is a one-on-one, individualized or group process to benefit the leader and her institution. Working with goals defined by both the leader and the institution, we use various methods, assessments, and feedback to develop the leader’s capacity for current and future leadership. Expanding the capacity of the leader necessarily expands the capacity of the institution to accomplish its goals. It is the focus on both leader and institution that distinguishes executive coaching from leadership coaching, which primarily focuses on the development of the leader.  

Why executive coaching through HERS?  

We approach executive coaching from a systems perspective and in the context in which the leader is leading.  Leadership is learned through ongoing practice, assessment, reflection, and action. Thus, leadership always occurs in a particular context, leads to action, and has an impact to be evaluated.   

Leading colleges and universities today is both noble and daunting work. We are committed to the effectiveness, sustainability, and well-being of presidents and senior leaders. We believe that both the interiority of leaders and the exterior demands of institutional leadership are complementary. 

Who is this program for?

Executive Coaching Circles are designed for higher education executives at the levels of president, chancellor, provost, or dean; vice president, vice chancellor, vice provost, or vice dean; or assistant or associate vice president, assistant or associate vice chancellor, assistant or associate provost, or assistant or associate dean. This program is aimed to help strong, effective leaders be even stronger and more effective, and become better leaders on behalf of their institutions.  

Join the first cohort in the brand-new Executive Coaching Circles program this spring and get ready to become an even better leader
