The word coaching can be traced back to a Hungarian word ‘kocsi’ meaning carriage. It was the name associated with an efficient and sophisticated mode of transport for carrying people. It was circa 1830’s that the term coaching made its way into the realms of development. Professors and Tutors at Oxford University were seen to be effectively working with students to ‘carry’ them through their exams. In more recent years the term coaching became identifiable for a similar effect in the realms of sport and ultimately business strategy.
Coaching becomes a powerful method to ensure leadership principles and development programs are successfully taken to a greater level of awareness, action and follow through. Unique skill gaps can be truly be identified and targeted. Coaching, executive coaching or even mentoring may then form one component of an overall approach (alongside methods such as blended live and e-learning) to carve out individual learning pathways.
Given the pace with which business services, products, technologies and environments now move, the need to keep up with change is constant. Continued learning is essential. Individual growth though is still a personal choice. An effective coaching method ensures personal choice be driven from a space of self realisation and self actualisation rather than required conformity.
Core considerations from bodies such as the International Coaching Federation identify key considerations which we fit primarily into four main categories;

Co-Create The Relationship
Facilitate Learning & Results

The concept of coaching is nicely summarised by the Budhist koan (a question or probing concept designed to encourage internal analytical intellect and problem solving);
‘You’ve got to do it by yourself. And you can’t do it alone’
The coach, the coachee, using powerful method and tools, both play their part towards successful coaching outcomes.
Coaching – Executive Coaching Programs – Instilling Internal Coaching Methods
(Exceptionally critical with many businesses given a trend for people leaders to wear the dual hat of managing and coaching)
We frequently encourage use of behavioral science tools such as MBTI, DISC, EQ and WPMOT as an integral part of the coaching agreement and framework.
