Coaching is a different approach to developing your potential or the potential of your employees. It can provide the opportunity to grow and achieve optimal performance through consistent feedback, exploration, problem solving and action steps. Those who undertake coaching can expect improvement in productivity, satisfaction with life and work, and the attainment of relevant goals.
