WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM COACHING?
Coaching has the power to take the group, the individual from where they are to where they need to be. And why is that so powerful? Well, it’s because that’s exactly what we need to do in business. We need to take today’s business results and even double it and triple it. In order to double it or triple it, we need new behaviors. We need new ways of operating. We need new ways of thinking. The coach is the one that helps the individuals or the groups to do that, to process the kinds of thinking they need to think, to ask the questions they need to ask, to step into the areas that they’re not comfortable stepping into. All of those things are brought to the table by the coach. It’s the clients, frankly, that do the work. It really is up to the teams to step up and work with the coach, and it’s up to the organizations to align themselves in the direction of the company. But that’s what a coach does. That’s the job of the coach, is to encourage and motivate those to do just all of those things.
How Does Coaching Produce Results?
Individuals produce results. Coaching focuses on that individual’s behaviors. That individual’s behaviors all come together into a set of actions. Those actions deliver the results to the bottom line. That’s what we’re after. We continue to adjust the behavior and align the behaviors to what the company needs to drive, actions then follow suit, and results were achieved. It is about results in the bottom line. We’re just starting with the individual.
