For members who are not very familiar with the concept of strategic sessions and coaching and have not “tried” a coach just yet, we’ll try to highlight for you the most important benefits of coaching in the following paragraphs.

According to The International Coach Federation (ICF) coaching means “Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”

The Main Benefit of Coaching

The great benefit of coaching is that you are very likely to see quick, positive results as an outcome. This is because coaching is participative and people tend to learn and adopt new habits more easily when they are actively engaged in the learning process. As soon as a coaching session ends you can implement a new practice.

The process is entirely devoted to you – your issues and the attainment of new behavior goals. One great point about coaching is that it takes place over an extended period of time. This means they will be constantly challenged and encouraged to work on issues that need improvement.

By constantly doing better you practice good habits and the more you practice – the more natural it becomes to automatically change and improve your behaviors.

Coaching can be done both at the individual or at the organisational level.

The benefits of coaching an individual include:

  • Improvement in an individual’s performance, targets, and goals

  • Increased openness to personal learning and development

  • Increased ability to identify solutions to specific work-related issues

  • Greater ownership and responsibility

  • Development of self-awareness

  • Improvement of specific skills or behavior

  • Greater clarity in roles and objectives

  • The opportunity to correct behavior/performance difficulties

The benefits of coaching at an organization level include:

  • Allows fuller use of an individual’s talents/potential

  • Demonstrates commitment to individuals and their development

  • Higher organizational performance/productivity

  • Increased creativity, learning, and knowledge

  • Motivates people

  • Facilitates the adoption of a new culture/management style

  • Improves relationships between people and departments
