Coaching is a discipline that involves a coach and an individual or group of people that requires a change of perspective and an improvement, in terms of communication and thinking, that will help them fulfill their potential faster and maximize their performance.
Generally, business coaching Adelaide and executive coaching Sydney take place when various company managers hire business coaches or executive coaches to train their top-level employees and help them understand company's objectives better and improve their effectiveness, in order to reach those objectives.
Company managers know what they want from their employees and, usually, they are the ones who set objectives for their employees. However, there are managers who prefer to let coaches identify the development needs of their top-level employees and set measurable goals for them.
After setting the objectives, coaches start to give clear assignments to employees that will allow them to achieve their objectives. Employees are monitored during such training programs, because their coaches want to discover their flaws and help employees overcome them.
Any problem can be eliminated and any employee can be better. Professionals providing business coaching Adelaide or executive coaching Sydney work with their clients towards specific goals; these goals are achievable, being designed to improve a faulty area of the employee.
For example, if the employee is a very good professional, but not that good at communicating with his colleagues and superiors, the "homework" given by his coach would be to undertake projects that require a high level of communication.
At the same time, an employee that does not know how to deal effectively with conflict situations, creating chaos within the organisation, would be asked to participate in working groups that have as main goal creating a pleasant work environment, where all employees feel appreciated.
If company managers believe that their employees should improve more areas, like communication, performance, attitude towards change, or effectiveness, coaches create complex assignments for employees that should improve all of these areas.
Besides assignments that are carefully monitored by coaches, a coaching company also provides theoretical coaching sessions that take place in a classroom-based environment. Unlike assignments that are usually tailored to every employee in particular, coaching sessions speak about general development techniques that may be adapted by any employee, in order to reach his objectives.
An assignment can last from several days to an entire year. Executive and business coaching assignments last, usually, the longest. Besides the top-level employees that participate in the coaching program and that are monitored and interviewed by coaches, some of their colleagues could also be interviewed, because coaches need to consider some other points of view on the evolution of those particular top-level employees.
The best results are achieved when experiential learning is combined with theory sessions. But, depending on the development needs of every company and employee, coaches can customise their training programs and assignments.
