Coaching provides personalized and consistently-focused help to individuals to reach their professional goals. It helps professionals discover and leverage their strengths, recognize obstacles to success, and identify a course of action to help them maximize performance.
Coaching is a process consisting of focused conversations to create an environment for individual growth, purposeful action and sustained improvement. There are different types of coaching according to the individual needs:
Executive Coaching - Develops fast-trackers and high performing leaders. Often executives need an objective, neutral sounding board to discuss challenges, opportunities and their perspective. The coaching process allow executives and managers to step away from their day-to-day routine and effectively design a strategy on how they can reach beyond where they are currently.
Professional Development Coaching - Is similar to executive coaching and is offered at all levels within the organization.
Career Development - Is for individuals needing and/or wanting to move from their current position. Career coaching helps individuals to use their strengths, to see where they may have weak spots and to identify a suitable course of action.
