The need for developing future leaders in today’s highly complex and uncertain operating environment cannot be overemphasized. Most of the extant literature on leadership focuses on already practicing professionals such as C-suites, executives, and managers. Literature on developing emerging leaders seems to be scant. Though most business colleges and universities, teach leadership and management courses from undergraduate level, there seem to be little attention given to the significance of these activities in organizational effectiveness and economic transformation. This article recognizes the significance of ensuring coaching, consulting, and facilitation programs are initiated at grassroots level. The current study focused on determining the role of coaching in enhancing skills of emerging leaders or professionals. The study also focused on determining the challenges that emerging professionals are facing regarding career foresight. The study found out that coaching is a strategic imperative to individual and organizational success.
