Executive Coaching and Feedback Program

The mission of the Executive Coaching and Feedback Program (ECFP) is to enable and support every MBA student in the pursuit of deeper self-awareness and improved leadership skills to advance individual success and team and community performance.

Modeled after executive coaching programs at leading corporations and shaped by scholarship and best practices in the field, the ECFP is designed to provide students with both the structure and flexibility to develop their ability to lead.

ECFP is available to both full-time and Executive MBA second-year students only. Specific details on timing will be communicated to students each summer/early fall, respectively.

How It Works:

Launched in the fall of 2012, the ECFP is a unique opportunity for students to get personalized one-on-one executive coaching based on detailed feedback from peers and former/current co-workers. Beginning in the second year of the MBA program, students receive a series of six executive coaching sessions. Please visit the right-hand side of the page for specific details related to the full-time and Executive MBA offerings.

As a participant in the ECFP, you will:

  • Build self-awareness, enabling personal and professional growth and change
  • Collect feedback on leadership competencies from multiple experiences and teams
  • Identify and address leadership strengths and opportunities for development
  • Receive personalized one-on-one coaching from a seasoned executive coach
  • Create a leadership development plan that integrates values and strengths, allowing you to define goals and track progress over time
  • Practice transforming experiences into learning opportunities

Student Testimonials:

“Because of ECFP, I am more thoughtful and aware of my behavior and the behavior of those around me as it pertains to leadership and influence”
“ECFP and getting paired with my coach is one of the highlights of 2Y. I cannot express how grateful I am for the growth – both professional and personal – that has come from working with my coach.”
“ECFP was fantastic – I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the program. My coach helped me come to a very important realization about how I interact with teams and how my communication (and therefore, influence) can be much more effective. I also so appreciated their warmth, empathy, and willingness to explore any topics I brought up.”
“My coach did a great job of being responsive and asking probing questions to help me make connections between my fieldwork and behavioral patterns.”
“I developed an understanding of what my strengths and development opportunities are and more specifically see what aspects of my leadership I have to accept vs. actively work on. My coach gave me helpful frameworks to evaluate my behavior and the behaviors/motivations of others, which will enable me to better work with my teams. Finally, we came up with specific tips that I can practice on a daily basis when I re-enter the professional world, to improve my leadership.”
