Why is Coaching important in today’s world and what would you classify as effective coaching?
Today, we live in a world that is increasingly Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (#VUCA). For individuals and organisations this means, being far more alert, agile, responsive and performance focused to achieve goals.
With the daily effort needed to balance personal and work life, individuals can easily lose focus and #motivation, or at times even feel mentally strained. #Coaching is a highly effective way for individuals to be able to focus and improve their performance, overcome obstacles and achieve their goals.
#Coaching is a powerful tool that helps develop an individual’s or team’s capacity to perform better, improving their effectiveness, both at work and in their personal space.
#Effectivecoaching has some underlying foundations:
Co-relating instances of challenges allows #Coachees greater freedom to express themselves, bring clarity in their thinking and making them more self-aware.

Let us first understand who a Coach and Coachee are.
‘Coachee’ is a term used to describe individuals who are seeking #coaching to help overcome specific challenges or obstacles, support and improve their personal or professional #performance, or may be part of a team or organisation that is receiving coaching to improve their collective performance.
A ‘Coach’ works with the coachee to identify their goals and objectives and to develop a customised #coaching plan that is tailored to their specific needs and circumstances. By working with a coach, coachees can gain valuable insights and feedback, learn new skills and strategies and receive ongoing support as they work towards their objectives.

Benefits of leadership coaching: Leadership coaching helps leaders to improve their communication skills, build stronger relationships, enhance their decision-making abilities, and improve team dynamics. Coaching also help to reduce stress, increase motivation and confidence, and enhance overall performance.
Coaching process: The coaching process typically involves an initial assessment of the individual or team's needs and their aims, followed by the #development of a coaching plan that outlines specific outcomes and strategies for achieving them. The coach then works with the individual or team to implement the coaching plan and provides ongoing feedback and support throughout the process.
