The United Kingdom Coaching Strategy describes the role of the sports coach as one that “enables the athlete to achieve levels of performance to a degree that may not have been possible if left to his/her own endeavours.”
In today’s world we should apply the same psychology athletes use to perform at a top level to our businesses. The Innovative companies of today understand that coaching can help career-minded professionals increase their performance at work. They invest in coaching for their senior leaders and high potentials.
A good coach can:
– Create a safe environment in which people see themselves more clearly
– Identify gaps between where the client is and where the client needs or wants to be
– Ask for more intentional thought, action and behavioral changes than the client would have asked of him or herself
– Guide the building of the structure, accountability, and support necessary to ensure sustained commitment
