Why Coaching is here to stay
It took the business world long enough to catch up with the sports world but thankfully it has – coaching isn’t a fad, it is here to stay.
When you think of it, if you want to improve performance in any area of life, the very first thing that needs to change or operate differently is the mind, and for that you need a coach. Someone who is able to mold and guide your perception of yourself and what you are capable of and to set you on track for what you want to achieve.
There are many athletes who train and practice very hard, they have the required skills to compete in their sport but when it comes down to a decisive, do or die moment, that doesn’t depend on skill or stamina but rather tenacity and mental strength, only a few are able to face it head on and shine. The ability to do that doesn’t come from physical training but rather mental training.
Likewise, in the business environment, employees may know the ins and outs of doing their jobs but if you really want to create a team of individuals who are able to be high performers in tough times, you need to seriously think about implementing a coaching culture in your organization.
# 1 Coaching enables employees to be empowered and to take responsibility for their careers
# 2 Coaching gives employees a toolkit to guide them in making decisions
# 3 Coaching is an important tool in improving performance, increasing motivation and creating satisfaction at work
# 4 Coaching can improve business targets dramatically if done right
Ask any football fan, how important the coach is in bringing out the best in individuals and a team. Think about it, as individuals they are all highly-skilled football players but it takes the right coaching culture to build a cohesive team that racks up the points.
