Coaching serves one goal and one goal only: Performance improvement.Looking at a dictionary, coaching usually has one of the following meanings:
b) to give advice
c) to train
d) to practice or
e) to fill with facts
Without telling what to do a coach leads and helps to arrive at more practical solutions. Since every situation is different there can’t be any predefined methodology a coach can use in every situation. A coach must adapt to the circumstances.
Those telling you different, only care about your money in their pocket.
Successful coaching requires
- Mutual acceptance and respect
- Shared trust
- Absolute confidentiality
- Session are voluntary and not forced on someone
- Multiple sessions
- Each session has a time limit
- A closed group (or single person)
It is the job of the coach to improve self confidence, self perception and to remove Business Blindspots
Winning coaching is based on a coaching concept: Interventions and the context in which the coach acts are clearly defined before any coaching is done. This avoids manipulation by the coach. And also helps to better understand the coaching process.
If you use a coach and haven’t improved—change the coach!
