Coaching the Individual
Individual coaching benefits not only the individual because it does. It accelerates their growth in their development. It also benefits the bottom line. It benefits the organization as well and so there needs to be a very strong connection between what the coach and the coachee are working on and [inaudible] the behaviours that are going to be adjusted and the actions that are going to be taken that are different to what the results need to be from an organizational perspective as well. Coaching is designed to integrate these new behaviours in a seamless and sustainable way so the business results and the individual results continue way after the coach leaves. Individual coaching produces bottom-line results
Coaching turns skills into action and results.
Go ahead take a course. Come back to coaching to grow your competence.
If you need a skill take a course. Have a great time. Come back to coaching after that because what a coach can do is help you to assimilate that skill into your new set of behaviors, into a new set of actions that’ll drive the results that you want. That’s when coaching really plays well.
