Performance Oriented Coaching
- Types of Coaching
We all like to compartmentalize our lives, but unfortunately (or fortunately) the different areas of our lives overlap and are bound together. So when I talk about different types of coaching please be aware of the overlaps and how a coaching project could move from, say, executive coaching to life coaching (and back again). The great thing about coaching is that all individuals are different and, as such, no two coaching assignments are ever the same.
- Executive Coaching
Executive coaching focuses on top level executives to bring the most from the strategies and how they implement them with their team. Executive coaching can be geared towards onboarding the executive during his or her transition into a new environment, guiding the executive through an organizational change, such as a merger or restructuring, or training the executive to employ a new skill set.
- Team (Business) Coaching
Like individual coaching, team coaching focuses on improving performance. In the case of a team, the coach observes the team's current functioning, assesses the team's strengths and weaknesses, and develops a plan for addressing any needed changes.
- Individual (Life) Coaching
When a person coaches an individual client - often marketed as life coaching - the initial task involves the coach and client working out a mutual understanding of the scope of work and documenting that understanding in a coaching contract. Then the coach helps the client to prioritise their current needs and looks for ways to address any improvements.
- Organizational Coaching
In organizational development (OD), coaching forms an important intervention designed to assess and improve performance of an individual or a team. It is very important to improve the skills of the person which can be achieved through proper training by which he can achieve organizational goals and also enhance his knowledge and skills.
- How is Coaching different to Mentoring
A mentor often has many more years of experience than the person being supported. Mentoring is akin to role modelling where the client sees attributes, qualities or abilities in the mentor that he/she wishes to learn or emulate.
Coaching is a partnering of two equals, which focuses on the unique and intrinsic qualities already within the client that may not be recognised or appreciated. The coach helps the client affirm and embrace his or her own true self.
- How is Coaching different to Counselling
Counselling often looks into the past in order to discover, heal and understand. Coaching, on the other hand, looks to the future in order to make a good life even better.
In coaching, the starting point is the client's desire for personal and professional success. Coaching focuses on forwarding all aspects of the client's life to become extraordinary; Coaching is not about how you came to be who you are; it's about getting you from where you are now to a future that you want.
