Professionalism and a Willingness to Learn

Business Coaching for Developing Interpersonal Skills

We saw in the article Business Coaching and Non-Technical Skills that business coaching is more suited to developing interpersonal skills, work ethic and in identifying issues which are holding the person back rather than providing a learning environment to try and impart technical knowledge or provide specific training on a particular subject.


Delegates Need to Commit to Learning and Development

When it comes to training and development, it is vitally important that a delegate has the willingness and desire to learn and take in the information being taught by the course tutor. Without this openness to learn, a lot of the valuable information will not be absorbed and is likely to be missed entirely if the individual's concentration begins to wander.


Continuous Development to Reach the Top

Those who have a true desire to reach the top and advance their career significantly will realise the importance of training to gain as much knowledge about their particular field and subject as possible. This involves consistently attending training sessions, principally refresher training to maintain their skills and knowledge, and also being receptive to ideas and methods which they feel an initial disagreement and aversion to, as it may be the case that there is in fact a way of working or idea which the person never even considered before which could prove extremely useful and valuable to them in the near or long term.


The Detrimental Impact of Someone Who Thinks They Know It All

People who believe they know all there is to know will often find that they plateau in their career advancement. It often leads to arrogance also, which can come across in dealings with colleagues and even managers and superiors, which can further hamper the person's chances of advancing in the company hierarchy.
