What Business Coaching is

Business coaching is solution-oriented process aiming for personal and professional development. The role of a Certified Business Coach is to positively challenge and question the coachee’s own beliefs and behaviors so that he or she can build new forward-looking solutions and behaviors.

The role of a Certified Business Coach is therefore to help a person develop and become even better in what he or she already knows. The coaching process helps a person see their own strengths, their self-esteem grows and they get better results.

More and more business leaders, entrepreneurs and companies are using business coaching services to succeed and stand out in the competition. Standing out and having the reassurance of doing the right things in the right way,  builds a solid foundation for success in an ever-changing world.

The coaching process makes it possible to take a person’s performance to a new level. During the process, the Coach helps the client figure out his/her goals – what he/she wants and how to reach the goals. The process creates motivation for the coachee, is empowering and is always looking forward to choosing next steps and how to succeed in what is to come.

Who can benefit from Business Coaching?

Business coaching is for anyone who wants to develop, personally or professionally. The only really important requirement, is that the coachee wants to be coached, and wants to develop.  If this is the case, coaching can help you see things from new angles, bring out the best in you and and help you significantly develop as a person and further your career.

Business coaching is suitable for anyone, who wants to grow and develop.

Business coaching is perfect for someone who is planning, or has just started their own business, and needs support to get started efficiently from the start. Coaching is also very suitable for someone who has started in a new position or in a new role, maybe a team lead or management position for the first time, and need to take on  new role and new responsibilities quickly.

Business coaching can also be recommended if you work as a manager and want to develop in that role – how to be a good leader and be able to efficiently lead different types of employees.

The goals you set for coaching can also be tied to business goals: how to increase sales or revenue, or how to streamline or improve things.

Business coaching is also a great way to reward a motivated employee. Instead of a bonus, he or she can be given the opportunity to develop in his career  through coaching.

Benefits of coaching

Personal growth as well as improving a company’s performance is one of the main reasons why business leaders use business coaching. Coaching results can be measured in many ways: turnover, profit, growth, employee comfort / turnover, cost, customer experience, etc. Each area can be developed and optimized togehter with Adiente’s professional Certified Business Coach.

Another very important reason to offer coaching to your staff is to increase and engage in job satisfaction through personal growth.

The Business Coaching process in practise

Our Certified Business Coach Master helps a coachee define and accomplish his or her own goals. The coach constantly supports the coachee’s own ability to solve and develop.

A business coaching process consists of six face-to-face sessions with your Certified Business Coach. Sessions are usually held 1-2 times a month, usually for 3-6 months. One session lasts 1-1,5 hours.

Depending on the goal, a three-pronged approach to coaching can also be taken. Thus, the manager of the coachee is an active part of the process. In this case, the coaching process starts with an initial discussion, where in addition to the coach and the coachee, the manager of the coachee is also present. The goals of the whole process are defined during the initial discussion. The manager will then support his/her team member in his/her development throughout the process. The manager also joins the last coachingsession, where the results of the coachingprocess are evaluated together.

The role of a Certified Business Coach is to walk alongside the coachee and help him/her identify own strengths and resources. The coaching process is always positive and solution-focused and focuses on how the coachees abilities can be strengthened and used to achieve the goals.

When Business Coaching is not the right approach

In order for the coaching process to be successful, it is important that the coachee wants to participate in the coaching and have the will to develop. If a person is exhausted, has long-term well-being issues, or has no desire or resources to develop him/herself, therapy or other forms of support may be a more appropriate option.

"Courage made me do things I didn't think I could do. I wasn't what I thought I was. I was much more."
