Executive coaching has significant application to educationalists at Primary, Secondary and Tertiary level. The history of executive coaching evolved from the psychology, training, management consulting, and coaching professions. Yet the principles that underpin much of executive coaching are those of adult education. Two key issues arise from this paper: Firstly that education can lay claim to this field of endeavour and offer significant insights into the development of the executive coaching profession. Secondly that executive coaching has many practical applications in the education profession in terms of educator development and improvement of practice. Leaders and potential leaders in the education professions gain significantly through application of executive coaching principles in their workplace
