“It will be as common to have a coach as it now is to have a personal trainer.”
There’s been a cognitive revolution in the fact that seeking outside help evolve into your ideal self is not a bad thing. This massive influx goes far beyond being merely a trend. Many people are at a crossroads in their life, exploring what’s next, seeking more meaning and fulfillment in life to better themselves.
What coaching is – and what it is not
Coaching is NOT therapy.
Coaches are powerful resources that help you tap into your reservoir of potential and help illuminate your vision along with the necessary steps on how to take action on them. Businesses have adapted this coaching model and have even included it into their benefits package. Those who undertake coaching also can expect appreciable improvement in productivity, satisfaction with life and work, and the attainment of relevant goals. They help you focus on your personal development, shed light on some blind spots you might not be made aware of, help you acquire effective leadership skills along with reinforcing your personal brand.
Why coaching isn’t just about motivation
“For coaches to make a powerful difference in your life, they have to have developed their own teachable point of view.”

Which is why many organizations are employing a coaching program for their team members.
According to a survey conducted by the ICF, 60% of respondents from organizations with strong coaching cultures report their revenue to be above average, compared to their peer group.
