What is Coaching for Business Leaders and Entrepreneurs?

There are many different forms of coaching available: Life Coaching, Business Coaching, Executive Coaching, Sports Coaching, Wellbeing Coaching…and many more!

In general terms Coaching is a solution for growing and developing people.

It’s a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the coaching client to develop their personal and professional potential. It facilitates their growth.

Coaching for Business Leaders and Entrepreneurs can help them to develop their own performance. It is also used to help them develop the performance of their business.

Coaching is not mentoring. A Mentor is someone with a specific set of skills or knowledge that passes this information on to their client.

Sir John Whitmore sums up coaching, perfectly:

“Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximise their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them.”

It can be tough at the top!
