What new trends should coaches opt for?
As it is rightly said by Einstein said, “You cannot solve a problem with the same level of thinking that created it.” Thus, coaches should indeed change their process of executive coaching style with the help of all new emerging trends.
1. Energy leadership
The old golden days of taking personality tests to train executives are gone. The latest trends are all about the energy leadership. This type of leadership will assist the executives of the company to raise their energy levels and deal constructively with problems and issues among the employees. Energy leadership will help the executive to lessen the pressure of demands by customers, shareholders or employees.
2. Strategic planning
Coaches should come up with new and innovative ideas related to timelines and deadlines. Executives should be measured periodically on their success and coaches should also provide them a creative backup in case executives lose upon their deadlines. Thus, each and every step should be planned strategically in the direction of achieving both individual and company goals.
3. Line of attack
Coaches should first clarify and maintain an excellent relationship with the executives they train. Next, the new trend is that initially it is the coach who should commit to help the executive complete his target and thus, provide him with ways in which the executive can come up with clear ideas and directions towards achieving his goals. Coaches should be well-trained to help their client to sketch out a proper line of attack in order to achieve their goals, targets and desired outcomes.
4. Direct feedback
Feedback is one of the most important skills needed by all executive and corporate coaches and yet it is one of the areas most neglected.
A good coach needs to be able to give clear, concise constructors yet motivating and encouraging feedback to help their clients realise when they are both on target and also way off target.
Feedback can be a minefield, there is most definitely a right way and a wrong way of going about it.
Get it wrong, and you will not only destroy your relationship with your client but will severely damage your clients self-esteem and self belief
Therefore, coaches should be well trained to enter the business world of 2012 and let their abilities and talents make a huge difference to the corporate world and thereby increase their own value.
