Coaching is an open collaboration format…
However, this does not mean that coaching is solely focused on professional development. During coaching sessions, the coach always addresses personal aspects, such as motivation, decisiveness, and a desire for change.
When a company needs a coach:
There is a feeling that the team doesn’t trust or listen to the leader.
There are problems with delegation.
The leader is unable to cope with the workload.
There is emotional tension.
There is a conflict brewing between the leader and other employees.
Assistance is needed in taking on a new position.
The leader cannot unite the team around a common goal.
Decisions are made slowly, and the results are not always satisfactory.
The leader has reached a career plateau and does not know where to go next.
There is a need to increase the leader’s effectiveness.
There is a lack of confidence when negotiating.
The leader cannot adapt quickly to changes.
The leader’s work-life balance is disrupted.
There is a desire to expand the career opportunities of employees.
What is the role of a coach?
Creating a safe space through non-judgmental presence. During a coaching session, clients can allow themselves to be different – imperfect, open, or vulnerable.
Helping clients discover what they did not notice before. By gaining a complete picture, they can make a better choice for themselves.
Supporting clients in their new endeavors. As a guide, the coach walks alongside them, providing encouragement and helping them move forward consciously.
Helping clients overcome obstacles on the path to transformation. When a person starts to change, the external system begins to resist. The coach is the one who helps to overcome this “headwind” on the way.
How Does the Work Proceed?Send Request
As a rule, coaching consists of a series of regular meetings. The most common duration for each meeting is 50-60 minutes, held once every 10-15 days.
Throughout the coaching process, the client is the content expert. They bring specific situations, thoughts, and goals to the meeting, while the coach is the process and space expert. The coach listens, asks questions, summarizes, paraphrases, and uses tools and techniques to help the client become aware of their blind spots.
As a result of coaching, a client:
● Becomes better at differentiating their personal experiences from those of their environment.
● Analyzes how their perception of a situation allows them to influence it and which responsibilities they delegate to others.
● Identifies what they can and cannot control.
● Develops new behavioral strategies to alter the system’s functioning.
