Executive consultants provide coaching and support services to senior professionals at the highest levels of management. They offer leadership development, coaching, career counseling, and other services to help promote professional growth that benefits the individual and their organization. They perform assessments and create evaluations and feedback reports, along with development plans. Consultants may also work with teams or groups of managers. They also assist with career advancement and job search strategies such as networking.
Executive consultants typically have an advanced degree such as an MBA, although a bachelor’s degree combined with extensive relevant professional experience may be acceptable. They must have an in-depth understanding of the challenges and concerns of professionals at the executive level, and have expertise in career growth and development tactics for executives.
