“Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximize their own performance. It’s helping them to learn rather than teaching them.” Tim Gallwey
Coaching is a self-improvement tool that proved so far to unlock the inner skills; usually, it is a consequence of self-development programs or as a request in inspired organizations with high achievement standards.
Coaching is seldom used from middle to top management and up in more and more organizations because it has the power to motivate and it significantly increases the rate of turning the ideas into real action.
88% of Western-European companies and 75% of the World Wide companies use coaching as a strategic development tool.
Coaching can be useful in the following areas:
