The word ‘coaching’ has quite the history. It can be traced back to a Hungarian word ‘kocsi’ meaning ‘carriage’. By the 1830s the term coaching began to circle, with professors at Oxford University seen to be working with students to ‘carry’ them through exams. More recently, of course, the term has become synonymous in the realms of sport and business strategy.
In a business sense, coaching is a powerful method used to drive improvement and outcomes through accountability and mentoring by the coach, and a greater level of awareness, action and follow through from the subject.
Given the pace with which the world now operates, the need to keep up with change is constant, but this can sometimes seem like an insurmountable task to the busy executive.
It’s times like these that a robust coaching framework really works its magic.BOOK A FREE HALF HOUR COACHING SESSION

They said what?!
“I had the pleasure of Mark as an executive mentor whilst moving from an operational background into our sales environment. Marks depth of knowledge surrounding value added sales processes, leadership and behavioural tools played a critical role during my transition. Mark has an engaging, high energy personality and speaks with contagious enthusiasm for the subject matter he teaches.
During our conversations, Mark was able to easily distil the underlying themes and barriers to my own and my teams success simply from listening to my choice of language. Mark helped me clearly articulate those themes and provided simple, but incredibly effective tools that allowed me to develop a high performance culture within our sales team.
My own professional development has come leaps and bounds simply from being exposed to Mark, and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a sales and leadership business coach – Michael Stein, General Manager Sales & Marketing APAC, Covermore
