I'm often asked, "what do you do?" In the past, this question was a bit easy to answer. "I'm a consultant, or I'm a manager, or even I'm a human rights consultant." But now that I have a training and consulting company, I answer: "I'm a coach and coach" and people either worry: "Oh, yes, my sister (aunt, mother, friend, etc.) is a coach" or they look awkward and ask: "What does the coach do then?" And I often feel a little bit bad to respond, because the training is very different after training coaches, previous work or professional backgrounds, other areas of knowledge and expertise, chosen customer type, value frame and attitude, and a host of other factors .
And it's not just the coaches that are so different; There are also customers who have very different needs and expectations about the coach and the training process. Some clients are looking for a thinking company to help them categorize with complex personal or professional circumstances, or a mentor or specialist in a particular field to help them become an expert yourself or career counselor or counselor to help them determine their next best career transfer.
Customers can be young university students / university teachers who want to plan ahead for fertile, lucrative and adequate career; or an individual who wishes to return to workforce after a substantial absence; or manager who commences a change process in his department or department; or a moderate manager who is suddenly small and needs assistance in categorizing with them often painless monitoring of such experience and in assessing their careers.
Most training programs teach their students that a client (or coachee) is an expert in himself and that the role of a coach is to guide and support the customer through a discovery process to identify certain gifts, interests, values, goals, dreams together with their restrictive attitudes , negative practices and other internal or external obstacles. The coach does this by asking the customer's questions to stimulate this self-examination and to keep deeper this survey by testing, and sometimes "heavy" query. People hire a coach because they want to make significant changes to life or work and that means they must be willing to participate in work that such a change requires.
A good coach is not a friend, though they usually see it deep for their customers; Instead, they are teachers, advocates, project managers and patrons. Their goal is to help their clients achieve or achieve the goals they pursued in the training process. Good coaches believe the whole heart of the customer's ability, support regardless of their dreams and are very pleased with the success of their customers!
