As well as providing business coaching and executive coaching to those who require the services of an experienced and external business coach, at the Business Coaching Foundation we also offer a number of courses and qualifications which will enable managers to effectively coach those in their team to improve their performance and help them to maximise their potential.
Providing effective coaching for your team will help to build commitment amongst them and not only achieve high levels of performance, but will likely lead to a raising of overall morale and a subsequent reduction in staff turnover as workers stay with your company and do not seek alternative career opportunities at other companies, some of whom may be competitors who would welcome the inside information these former employees could furnish them with!
What is Business Coaching?
Of course, before deciding whether you would like to become a business coach or not, you will need to know what business coaching and mentoring is all about if you do not know already! For those who are unsure, the Business Coaching Foundation website contains a wealth of information and articles regarding many different aspects of coaching, mentoring and training.
Being an Effective Coach
There are many elements and components of being a successful business coach, some of which the individual concerned may already be good at, and others which will require a significant amount of time, dedication and practice in order to develop. These skills include becoming an effective motivator, giving constructive feedback, setting performance plans, delegating, empowering others and many more.
In fact, the best coaches and managers in the world never stop learning, refining and even acquiring new skills in order to be the best that they can possibly be. For managers, business coaching is often combined with management training courses to develop their talents and make them more effective managers who can complete projects and overcome challenges as they present themselves.
