@ZsaZsa56 - The idea of a senior vice president using an executive coach is interesting. If they are acting as a high flyer's lifecoach that's fine. But when you stray into them advising you on your 'business strategies' it starts to sound a bit off to me.
I also wonder if the SVP could end up relying on an outsider too much, which would be pretty bad for the company paying their salary!
The business world is a hotbed for industrial espionage. It would be unwise to be sharing too many secrets with someone who may have your rivals as their clients, don't you think?
