How business coaching transforms leaders

Companies that implement business coaching across an organization see a significant return on investment with an increase in all-around performance. Additionally, leadership gains insight into the values their teams lean into most often. This high-level view provides leadership with a clearer understanding of their organization’s culture.

What is business coaching?

At its core, business coaching is a collaborative relationship between a professional coach and a business owner, entrepreneur, senior leader, or rising professional.

In this relationship, a business coach works with their coaching client to define and accomplish their goals while working through business obstacles and barriers. This is all done while the business professional practices self-awareness — learning how to identify and maximize their unique strengths as a leader.

Through regular coaching sessions, a coach will act as a guide, leading their coachee through professional growth opportunities. They may act as a strategic sounding board while the individual works to solve complex or novel problems. During exercises to identify and clarify core values and a long-term vision, a business coach can function as an accountability partner. In short: business coaching helps individuals reach their full potential.
