Guides and Resources for Career Coaches
You might ask — Why Coaching?
It's a good question, and the answer is found in the heart of human nature.
At MyOnlineCareerCoach.com, we have heard it many times, from married couples to world councils - communication is the key. Noted author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia declared, "Communication, the art of talking to each other, saying what we mean, saying it clearly, listening to what the other says and making sure that we're hearing accurately, is by all indication the skill most essential for creating and maintaining [key] relationships." Famed psychologist Carl Rogers added that, "the basic and most desperate need of our time [is] for more basic knowledge and more competent skills in dealing with the tensions of human relationships."
We all know by instinct and experience that communication is crucial in key relationships. No relationship, business or otherwise, will long survive bad communication. But in business, the bottom line depends on people.
In today's competitive marketplace, we cannot ignore the need for good coaching and communication. Coaches are not quite business consultants, whom you'd hire to address a particular operational or technical problem. But they're not psychotherapists, whom you'd tap to work through emotional issues. Selecting a coach who has extensive knowledge and has obtained a leadership degree will be valuable to you and your company.
In fact they do as much, and in the same way, as sports coaches who work with athletes: by helping you make the most of your natural abilities and find ways to work around your weaknesses. A good coach will make sure you meet your commitments, behave like a grownup, and otherwise stay out of your own way — things with which all of us can use a little help.
Competitive sports teach us that people learn best and attain peak performance when they receive support and guidance from a knowledgeable coach. To perfect our tennis or golf game, we eagerly seek out coaching. Yet all too often, when faced with a professional issue, a job crisis, or a business challenge, something that really matters to us — we go it alone.
But support is here!
