Coaching is more than just professional development for a single person. It is a way to help managers and leaders work more effectively within their organization, thus benefiting the entire company. Effective coaching starts with a careful job analysis to help the coach understand the unique needs of the business.
The second step is to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the individual to be coached. The third step is development planning, where we create an action plan for the coaching to follow. The fourth step is the coaching itself which usually occurs over a six to nine month period. The end result is a stronger, more effective leader
who can help the organization meet its goals.
