What is Business Coaching?

What is Business Coaching?

There are numerous variations of the term coaching and indeed business coaching and yes, they're pretty much alike. Here at the BCF Group, we like to keep things as succinct as possible rather than complicating everything or unnecessarily reinventing the wheel. Keeping that in mind, this is the definition we've chosen to answer the question "What is business coaching?":

"A skilled business conversation that enables the person being coached, to come up with their own options to move forward on a business challenge with high commitment."

That said, coaching is a mechanism/technique of transitioning someone from their present state to their desired state (P»D).

However you get from P»D, business coaching can bring unparallel results in terms of ROI. Engaging a business coach will allow you to explore all possible options and boundaries from an independent and objective view point where bureaucracy and politics don't exist. A good coach will ask you the right questions and free your mind of obstructions so you create the winning formula you need.

Business coaching is therefore different to conventional training in that it does not seek to teach a person knowledge and information about a particular topic or subject area, but instead aims to work with them using effective discussions to come up with suitable action plans for changing their current situation, with regards to developing and advancing their abilities, motivation, or whatever areas there is a need for improvement in.

Executive Coaching

Executive coaching is business coaching for senior executives within an organisation. Often these people have very little available time and have to fit their business coaching sessions in between important meetings and other work commitments.

Executives and senior managers typically have great responsibilities on their shoulders as they make significant decisions which can affect the fate of the entire company. For more information regarding executive coaching please click here.
