I hear what you say Dave, whilst most of us incorporate coaching in our everyday leadership,executive coaching has its place as a profession. Many people have underpinned their practice with rigorous academic research and qualification.
I love your shows and the resources you share are incredible in supporting us in our everyday roles

Agreed. Probably just semantics. Executive coaching is (of course) a profession – and we’ve had many amazing executive coaches as guests on the show. BTW, thanks for listening!
I stand by the broader term “coaching” as skill, not profession. It’s one of many skills we all need to lead people well — listening, strategic thinking, conflict management, speaking, planning, etc.
The vast majority of our listeners aren’t executive coaches and have no interest in the profession. However, virtually all of us would benefit from getting better at our coaching skills, thus the recommendation of Michael’s book — which makes coaching skills development very accessible.
