Organizational Coaching/Organizational Consulting & Executive Coaching


As a founding and board member of the Graduate School Alliance for Executive Coaching, coaching at Penn adheres to the following definition: Executive and Organizational Coaching is a development process that builds a leader's capabilities to achieve professional and organizational goals.

A leader is an individual who has the potential of making a significant contribution to the mission and purpose of the organization. This coaching is conducted through one-on-one and group interactions, driven by evidence and data from multiple perspectives and is based on mutual trust and respect. The coach, individuals being coached, and their organizations work in partnership to help achieve the agreed upon goals of the coaching.

Two coaching concentrations are available to students in the MSOD and the MPhil degree program, Organizational Coaching and Organizational Consulting and Executive Coaching.
