SHORT ABOUT BUSINESS COACHING
Here are some simple explanations to understand why they’ve decided to separate it.A business manager is more likely to be tempted to hire a coach who calls himself executive coach and who offers executive coaching or leadership coaching, especially when they need to get the board to approve the cost of hiring a business coach. An entrepreneur, on the other hand, may be more attracted to the business coaching because that’s where they identify their needs. Anyone looking for a coach to help them achieve a living balance or something else personally will probably seek a life coach for this instead of a business coach.
Because coaching is an unregulated field, a coach can call itself any kind of coach. The important thing to keep in mind when looking for a coach is that the person has a proper coach training. That someone has 20 years of marketing experience, management or a civil engineering background does not matter in a coaching conversation. In some cases, it may even be a warning signal, taking the role of an advisor who delivers their experience, vision and opinion on how a client should act and manage situations.
CertificationsThere are many different courses and certifications – One of the largest available today is issued by the International Coach Federation (ICF), which is an organization that ensures that the coaching performed by the coach is of a certain standard. All coaching has the same foundation and is defined by its practice and its results. Coaching is a series of intentional conversations that allow a person or group to live their fullest life. ICF, the world’s largest coaching organization, has 11 core competencies that all professional coaches will be practicing, whether they call themselves a business coach, coach or life coach.
Below you will see characteristics that define a coach:
- Coacher does not speak they listen.
- Coaches do not provide information, they ask questions.
- Coaches do not give ideas, they generate ideas from the client.
- Coacher does not share their history, they get their information from the client’s experience.
- Coacher does not present solutions, they expand the client’s thinking.
- Coaches do not provide solutions, they give the client the power to choose themselves.
BUSINESS COACHING GIVES A PROFESSIONAL TONE
The pressure of continuously delivering results causes leaders to ignore things that are not perceived as important. Because executives are amazing performers, they have come a long way thanks to their abilities, but encounter the roof of their abilities the higher up in the organization they manage to come. In these positions you need to develop mor than just strengths to prevent serious consequences. Mistakes in leadership can both cost millions and jobs.
Executive coaching can be very challenging in terms of time and energy. The higher up a leader comes in a business, the less time and patience they might have for slow processes. In order for a co-operation between the coach and the boss to work optimally, clarity, transparency and straightforward communication are required in all matters relating to the topic, goals and processes of coaching.
Listed below are some of the most common topics that leaders choose to be coached in:
- Interpersonal relationships, listening and empathy.
- Leadership during changing times.
- Communication skills.
- Motivation and commitment, to lead with vision and purpose.
- Build effective teams.
- Strategy and strategic thinking.
- Dealing with uncertainty and ambiguity; Decision ability.
- Mentorship, development of internal talent, learning.
