THE CLIENT: the person being trained. KEY STAKEHOLDERS, sometimes called sponsors, these individuals support the training, either by providing financial support or by taking an interest in the client's objectives and results, or both. Stakeholders provide first-class training to artists seeking to improve their talent for building internal relationships and client development. Andi has been training and mentoring for more than ten years, supporting artists in their efforts to achieve their full potential.
Although previously, a coaching task could involve two key parties (the coach and the coach), it is increasingly evident that there are more people who are interested in the work and the results, as explored by Eve Turner and Peter Hawkins. I will recommend that you ensure that you hire an experienced coach who has worked with several stakeholder groups in the past. In addition, the coach must understand the objectives of the organization and the purpose of the training and try to explore how the coach's goals can align with them. Check out this short video in which Marshall Goldsmith and I talk about the concept of stakeholders in a coaching engagement.
Alison Hodge is an executive coach accredited at the Master Practitioner level by the EMCC and an executive training supervisor accredited by the EMCC and APECS. Tom has served as a leadership advisor to corporate and compliance lawyers in global corporations and partners in large law firms. In addition, there is increasing evidence that the participation of line management in a coaching task can play an important role in successful training outcomes, as shown in the “Strategic Trends in the Use of Coaching” section of the sixth Ridler report.

For the executive coach, there are a number of key questions that can arise during a coaching task, and the coach must take them into account. You made a good point when you said that it is crucial that the coach interacts with at least some of the key players so that they are aware of the impact that training will have and how it could help achieve the improvements that the coach or company wants to see. Needless to say, supervision provides an invaluable opportunity for coaches to explore the complexity of working in organizational systems in which multiple stakeholders are involved.
