CEOs, directors and managers are so consumed by the day-to-day running of the business that they frequently have little time to look at the big picture, develop staff, increase value to customers and still have a work/life balance.
There are few people working within an organisation who have the coaching skills or time to focus on improving people’s performance, which is why there is such a great need for experienced business/executive coaches.
We are also specialists at coaching to deliver the perfect speech.
What does a business coach do?
A coach works with you privately to provide objective, professional direction to improve your performance by helping you enhance what you have and acquire what you need. Frequently, a coaching session is prompted by a career turning point that requires specialized advice. A turning point can be a new promotion; being passed over for a promotion; a move into a new job or industry; a change in reporting; job requirements; or responsibilities; or perhaps a new boss.
Why is there a need for coaching today more than ever?
To survive and thrive in today’s competitive environment, it’s not just what you know. Of course, you need to be extremely competitive, but you also must stand out from the crowd in the “soft” side of business – be memorable, impressive, credible, genuine, trusted and liked.
Organisations now realize that it is cheaper for them to “help fix” a current employee than to fire them, finding an interim replacement, recruiting a replacement and then training the new person. The bottom line is coaching saves the organisation money.
What areas are covered in coaching?
Coaching takes a holistic approach and although it focuses on the individual’s working life coaching sessions frequently centre on interpersonal development, personal change and transformation. Areas of coaching include:
- Leadership Development
- People Management
- Interpersonal and Communication Skills
- Imposter Syndrome
- Worrier to Warrior
- Consulting & Selling
- Delivering a speech/presentation
- Conflict resolution
- Career Transition
- Interview preparation
How will you benefit from coaching?
You will benefit by gaining increased awareness, confidence and the ability to act in a more effective manner with people up and down the ladder, inside and outside of the organisation. When you raise your personal performance and therefore the performance of your organisation, you also create job security. Coaching will help you:
- Recognise your potential
- Gain clarity and focus
- Be more organised and take back control of your life
- Improve your networking and communication skills
- Achieve a more balanced lifestyle
- Do your job better
