Leading the effort to standardize the way corporations utilize executive coaches, the Association of Corporate Executive Coaches (ACEC) announced that the Mayo Clinic and the Ford Motor Company will each get the Measuring Excellence in the Use of Executive Coaching in Organizations (MEECO) designation, which recognizes them as exemplars of best-in-class application of executive training at all levels of their companies to support the achievement of their company goals.
Our objectives are twofold, said CB Bowman, ACEC s creator and CEO. First, we want to determine and celebrate organizations who are utilizing corporate executive training as a vehicle that is vital to their success, and secondly, we want to share that knowledge with other companies so that they can be supported in executing best-in-class executive training practices.
One of the training finest practices is a trajectory for executive coaches to end up being enterprise-wide company partners within their customer companies. Organizations that make the designation share ACEC s objective to use mastery-level coaching and provide a standard for using coaching based upon a purposeful, rigorous, innovative and multi-faceted business method supporting a qualitative and quantitative ROI.
Speaking at the MEECO gala on April 28, will be keynoter, Barbara Singer Cheng, CEO of Executive Core, and visitor speaker, John Mattone. Both Cheng and Mattone have been winners of ACEC s International Thought Leader of Distinction award.
