What is Business Coaching
Business coaching is the process of engaging in meaningful communication with individuals in businesses, organizations, institutions, or governments, with the goal of promoting success at all levels of the organization by affecting the actions of those individuals.
Business coaching enables the client to understand and enhance his or her role in achieving business success.
The business coach helps the client discover how personal characteristics, such as one’s sense of self and personal perspectives, affect personal and business processes and the ability to reach objectives within a business context.
From there, a successful coach helps the client learn how to change or accommodate personal characteristics and create processes that achieve business objectives.
Business coaching provides positive support, feedback and advice to an individual or group basis to improve their personal effectiveness in the business setting.
What is a Business Coach?
Unlike traditional business consulting, business coaches don’t fix the problems for their clients and then go away. Instead, a business coach helps guide business owners into finding their own solutions to their problems.
The coach guides the client in putting strategic plans in place which will solve the problems (or capitalize on new opportunities). The coach facilitates creative and strategic brainstorming.
The coach then helps to facilitate the creation of tactical “action steps” that the client or client company will take to implement the strategy. Once the action steps are committed to, a good coach provides a structured environment where the client is accountable to him or herself for executing the plans.
