Dr. Glen Earl is a Certified Executive Coach with the Center for Executive Coaching. He has been both an internal and external coach. In this video, he talks about the differences, and also how he ramped up to having 14 internal coaching clients within one year at his organization. You will also appreciate his two pieces of advice for both new and seasoned coaches.
Here is what Dr. Earl wrote recently to us:
“It has taken me some two years to become the confident, competent executive coach I had envisioned myself being. What really accelerated that development was Parkland Hospital’s decision to include coaching in our new leadership development program. I am currently coaching 12 leaders and finished coaching 5 emerging leaders for a total of 17 people, in 8 months. The engagement period are 6 or 12 months. In addition to the 5 emerging leaders, I am currently coaching, 1 manager, 7 directors and 4 VPs. Their positions are ‘all over’ the hospital, e.g.; jail health, nursing administration, compliance, talent management, nursing research, pharmacy, radiology, surgery, emergency, community clinics, health information, women/infants, Parkland Foundation, and supply chain. And some really good news. I have my first external coaching engagement, for 6 months. He is an IT director at Ericsson. I want to thank you for your initial and ongoing support, education and involvement. It means a lot to me.”
Dr. Earl attached two wonderful recommendations/testimonials based on his coaching work. We are so proud and delighted to be able to include him as one of our alumni!
