Executive Coaching Program
Letter from the Director
Dear Prospective Student,
Executive coaching is a multi-billion dollar, rapidly growing field. Professionals with diverse backgrounds are finding new and exciting career opportunities. An increasing number of businesses in this country provide executive coaching to their leaders and the demand is growing. The return on the investment for organizations is proven. Industry research has found that the return is about 600 on each dollar spent for coaching. Organizations, and their executives who receive coaching, report increased productivity, quality of work, customer satisfaction, shareholder value, and executive and employee retention. Organizational climate and functioning is positively influenced by executive coaching with reports of increased employee satisfaction, better communication, improved working relationships, and greater teamwork.
The Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology (MSPP) is a leader in the field for educating and training executive coaches and in preparing professional coaches to make this kind of difference in organizations.
Our graduates re-enter the workforce well positioned to coach. Some graduates provide career development and advancement to their clients. Some assist in organizational development and improve team performance, while others work with senior executives to help build leadership capabilities. Many of our graduates return to management positions using their new skills in supporting development in their employees. As a member of the Graduate School Alliance for Executive Coaching (GSAEC www.gsaec.org) , MSPP is in a leadership position both nationally and internationally, in setting high standards for the education and practice of executive coaching.
There is lots of opportunity! The value of pursuing your training here at MSPP should be clear. Please feel free to e-mail if you have questions after exploring our webpages.
