Dr. Key’s website and blog provide useful information for those considering or already utilizing executive coaching, and for helpful information leading to enhanced personal development. Key informs readers of what it takes to benefit from coaching, developing the theme, Executive Coaching in Florida: Are You Coachable?, guiding readers through an application of a Coaching Defensiveness scale—the Harvard Business Review scale, published onsite for her readers.

Key describes her role as a “thinking partner, trusted advisor, executive coach” as well as a consultant, public speaker and author. The information describes the purpose of enlisting an executive coach,

“In business, a coach’s role is typically to help executives develop in some key areas that will enhance their leadership capabilities or, at times, in a specific content area.”

To benefit from coaching, organizations and individual executives need to be aware that executives have to be willing to make changes, adapt their style to the organization culture, and take down defenses. Taking down defenses in favor of a curious, interested, adaptable, and appreciative approach, will maximize the positive benefits from executive coaching for individual executives, teams, and organizations.
