Executive Career Coaching

Through the Executive MBA in Energy, our students now have access to resources previously available only to senior staff in major corporations. Our goal is to give students an undeniable professional advantage during the program as they gain direct experience with executive career coaching benefiting both the student and their employer. Through a combination of group facilitation, individual coaching, and workshops, EMBA students will experience clarity, direction, and purpose as they address their most pressing issues – professionally and beyond.  In partnership with Performance Consulting, LLC, the EMBA offers an accelerated version of their Executive Coaching services to complement our challenging curriculum and help students:

  • Deepen sense of self-awareness. Receive a personal assessment that will help you understand and manage yourself better. You’ll also receive personalized feedback and coaching from an Executive Coach who specializes in knowledge of the energy industry and was a former energy services CEO.
  • Build the strength, agility and resilience needed for sustainable career performance. Our leadership development topics in conjunction with the coaching will give you a better understanding of how to achieve and accelerate career success.
  • Experience personalized coaching. Your individualized executive career coaching sessions are designed to be a “thought partnership” that inspires, supports and maximizes your professional potential.
  • Practice “the power of executive mindfulness” through an array of platforms. Your coaching experience will consist of an introductory group workshop event during Module 1, a private executive coaching session scheduled at your convenience, online executive career coaching takeaways throughout the program and a follow-up group activity during Module 9 to review progress and executive career implications.

The OU EMBA offers this Executive Career Coach exclusively—for no additional fee—as an investment in each EMBA student's future as an influential energy leader.
