Executive Coaching


Executive Coaching





Welcome to IESE Alumni´s personal career coaching service,

In this changing and uncertain business environment, it is essential that we manage our current career and plan for the future.  Considering that our job takes more than one third of our time and it is our source of revenue, it can only make sense to spend time evaluating and planning our careers, as we would do with any business.
Certified coaches with a vast experience on accompanying top executives, will ask questions in order to help you gain perspective, reflect and decide how to maximize your professional results and optimize your professional career.

Our external executive coaches provide one hour personal sessions, either presential in one of the 10 cities listed below, or alternatively via Skype/phone elsewhere.
Cities: Barcelona, Bilbao, London, Madrid, Munich, Miami, New York, Vienna, Zaragoza, Zurich.

The first session is included in your Alumni membership fee.

This academic year (Sept.2017 to August 2018) IESE Alumni Association offers the option to request a second session with a co-payment of 75€.
To request the 2nd session, please send an email to Bettina Semmel attaching the payment receipt.

The coach could help you:

  •     Design a vision and develop your potential as executive

  •     Further develop key competencies such as leadership, team management, communication or decision-making skills

  •     Balance between your personal and professional life

If you are asking yourself the following questions, request a coaching session:

Do you need to reflect on an important decision?
Do you need to gain new perspectives and raise your self-awareness?
Do you need to move out of your comfort zone to move towards a desired situation?

    La sesión con Teresa me ayudó a reflexionar y tener seguridad en mi mismo sobre la decisión adoptada y la forma de ejecutarla. Su experiencia en muchos otros casos y las cuestiones que me planteaba me hicieron responderme a mi mismo sobre algunos temas evidentes. Llevaba 11 años en una empresa y tenía cierto respeto a lanzarme en mi nuevo proyecto; el cual por cierto está siendo un éxito. Sin duda la decisión más acertada. Gracias por ayudarme a ello.

    María de Mar Bernal Conde,

    After reaching a good position in a multinational company and accumulating a gratifying experience, I felt that the recognition and the position no longer ´made me smile.¨ Why? I was not sure, so I called IESE to help me redefine my career plan.
    My IESE advisor helped me take the decision of radically changing careers and have the conviction that I am in the right path to reach my ideal professional situation.  I am once again committed and determined to be at my best again.
