Coaching – Bringing out the Best! (ICF ACSTH Path Certification)
Every leader is different. Every bench is different. Every business is different. So while the complexities change, the work of coaching stays the same, keep your clients at the center of the work, push them to use their strengths more and to temper their weaknesses, and illuminate blind spots because these are what really get in the way.
– Stacy Feiner
Are you serious about creating change?
Do you want to serve others as a leader, facilitator and problem solver?
Do you want to change the world one person at a time?
We live in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world where disruption and change are part of our lives and our careers. Most career professionals have less time to reflect and focus on solving leadership issues, dealing with performance problems at work, engaging in creative problem solving and changing behaviour. And apart from pursuing career objectives there is limited time for personal growth and making sure that personal and family time balances with good health and other objectives.
90% of leadership and management positions advertised, require coaching skills!
The philosopher Aristotle defined excellence as an art won by training and habituation. And becoming excellent in a high-performance world requires good coaching with excellent coaches.
In becoming a coach, or developing coaching skills, you can enable high performance, motivation, resilience and personal growth and make a difference in the lives of people who want to stand out from the crowd as high performers, thought-leaders, and achievers.
