Professional coaches come in many disciplines and niches. There is corporate and executive and small business coaching, personal coaching as well as career coaching to name just a few.
Have you ever wondered what a corporate and executive coach does? The main goal in mind is helping their clients improve their business, or solve business-related issues they might be encountering. And at the end of the day, they help their clients grow their bottom line.
If you are a small business owner or a leader of a large organization and want to know how this coaching is best suited for your current needs, ask yourself:
whether you (or your staff) require strategy or personal
This will ultimately inform your decision.
A corporate and executive coach can:
-be independent (hired to coach teams and managers for specific periods of time)
-or can work in-house (retained by the company to coach the leadership and employees)
- or help you establish a business and the structure.
Corporate and executive coaches are brought in to help you with personal development. Yes, the personal development of executives will lead to improving the company’s bottom line, however, it’s certainly a more indirect method of going about the results.
Corporate and Executive coaches are typically hired to help C-suite, VPs and other executives with setting, following and achieving personal improvement goals
see the examples in our
Achievements vary from increasing productivity, developing leadership skills, managing staff, improving communication, increasing the bottom line etc.
It’s about facilitating change in someone’s (personal) behaviour which will ultimately result in achieving their fiscal goals, however indirectly.
Redundancy And Career Coaching
People are creatures of habit. We like things that are predictable and find comfort in familiarity.
We’re hardwired to resist change, because by its very nature, it brings uncertainty.
Uncertainty is a scary thing. It makes us feel like we’ve lost control, like we’re being led down a path blindfolded.
In life certain situations force change on us whether we’re prepared or not – and the resulting stress levels far exceed the norm. The loss of a job or a business where we may be doing the job we love is one of those times as is failure to secure a promotion.
"Your job is not who you are, it's just what you're doing on the way to who you will become." Oprah Winfrey.
Our jobs are much more than just the way we make a living. They influence how we see ourselves, as well as the way others see us. They give us structure, purpose, and meaning. Beyond the loss of income, being out of work can have an enormous impact on our health and well-being.
Research has found that losing a job, either suddenly or through redundancy, also comes with other major losses, including loss of identity, loss of self-esteem and loss of routine and purpose.
But there are certainly things we can do to cope with what is one of the more stressful experiences in life.
Equally you can plan your career so change or rejection is far less stressful. Like the Chief Superintendent who planned for a promotion and the increased redundancy package that went with it.
Through coaching he was was empowered to make history attaining the highest ranking position ever held by a BME police officer on Merseyside.
Check out what he says in our video and what others have gained from their investment in coaching/ consulting.
