So, what does a coach do–really? One of our readers asked this question recently as their manager was offering to “coach” them.
In this video, Coach Darcy Eikenberg shares the three things a coach REALLY does (and should do)–whether it’s a full-time professional like Coach Darcy, or someone else in your organization who’s coaching.
Listen in now (10 min).
Who Needs a Coach?
You do (or someone you’re responsible for at work does), if you’re:
- Wrestling through major change, whether positive (such as business growth), or negative (such as customer loss or personal stress).
- Weighing your next career decision (whether inside or outside your existing organization) and asking “what’s next for me?”
- Newly promoted or hired & needing to get productive fast –and to manage through the inevitable overwhelm of taking on something new.
- Experienced in your technical subject but need to grow your business acumen, communication & people leadership skills.
- Starting something new and need a safe, confidential sounding board to help plan out sensitive conversations and provide non-judgmental support to help you make big decisions
- Leading or serving as a key part of a team that must work better together to achieve a business result or goal.
- A business leader who knows you need to retain and engage the best employees in order to sustain business success–but you aren’t sure what to do next.
Want to experience coaching yourself?
There’s no preparation needed, it’s completely confidential. Just pick a time, answer a few short questions, and Coach Darcy will call you (or join you on Zoom) when you’ve scheduled.
If after you’ve talked, it makes sense to explore one of our private coaching programs or online classes, we’ll provide you with everything you need to decide whether investing in a professional coach is right for you.
