Not all coaches are the same.
However, the fundamentals of coaching, no matter what sector you're in, are the same.
Great coaches, in any sector - sports, leadership, career, life - are trained to use many of the same strategies and tactics to help others to successfully move forward. And consequently, business coaching is very similar to sports coaching: the coach provides guidance, shares experience, and provides measurements that help you to achieve optimum performance.
At one point in his career, the top seated golfer in the world, Tiger Woods, said he used 4 coaches at one time. He noted that he had a putting coach, for instance. His logic was stated simply,"He sees me from a different perspective. His feedback is invaluable..."
Likewise, business coaches provide business coaching support. He or she will tell it like it is and help you test new approaches, see things from another point of view.
Business coaching is focused on creating a successful business.
It's as applicable to those who own or run their own businesses as it is for managers and leaders in both large organizations and small companies. They do this through sharing new tips and tactics, support, with accountability and encouragement.
Business coaching helps you move the needle, increasing your levels of success in a measurable manner.
