Business Coaching Needs to be Continuous and with Targets

Business Coaching Needs to be Continuous and with Targets

As far as both training courses and business coaching are concerned, a factor which greatly enhances their effectiveness and impact is that of being continuous rather than a single one-off session. Whilst single sessions will more than likely bring about some benefit, either through improving a person's knowledge or providing them with useful tips for dealing with a situation, only continuous development will significantly and permanently boost their understanding and effectiveness when it comes to their performance in the particular job role.

Continuous Training and Development

Whilst continuous training and development has long been understood as necessary for certain topics such as health and safety training where knowledge needs to be continually refreshed so that individuals do not forget vital pieces of information, for other subjects like business coaching and the development of interpersonal skills managers may think that one course or session will suffice. They forget or do not realise that knowledge and personal development will be far greater and long-lasting if the worker or workers are provided with training over a period of time in regular sessions.

Continuous Business Coaching

This is especially true where business coaching is concerned. A key component of successful business coaching is the creation and setting of action plans, evaluating how successfully (or otherwise) the individual has been in implementing the changes, and further refining actions and targets as the workplace situation evolves and the person adapts to changing conditions. This is particularly the case when business coaching sessions are provided to workers, managers or executives who are experiencing major change and upheaval in the workplace, often as their duties change due to a promotion, relocation or change to the company structure such as a merger for example.

Although providing a one-off coaching session will provide some useful tips, eliminating this facility of setting, evaluating and refining plans and targets will take away one of the most important aspects and benefits of business and executive coaching, which will blunt its overall effectiveness. This is why many executives and senior managers who receive executive coaching do so sometimes for an indefinite and ongoing period, continuing long after the original situation which compelled them to seek out a qualified business coach has passed, as the ongoing process and continual setting and evaluating of action plans devised in partnership with the coach allows them to carry out their job in a much calmer, organised and ultimately effective way.
