The Objective of Business Coaching Online

business
Coaching is a process which transports people from where they are to where they want to be. A business coach provides positive support and feedback on an individual or group basis to improve personal/group effectiveness, performance and leadership in a given business setting. Coaching as support for managers is temporary. It is aimed at achieving a clearly defined change in perspective and behavior.

The clearly defined change request originates from the organization and their stakeholders. Colleagues can trigger the request or the superior manager might wish for a change in behaviour. Neighbouring departments with lots of interfaces to the potential coachee think that coaching will enhance the persons effectivness and productivity.

Often coaching objectives are defined as: enhance this or fine-tune that, improve here and adjust there. It sounds as if a coachee just has to check in at a repair shop to have his or her engine serviced. The work done, she or he drives off into a brighter and more effective future, pleasing all the surrounding onlookers.

As odd as this approach might sound, the comparison is not wrong. Business coaching has always a narrower focus than development coaching. But just because the focus is narrow, does not render business Coaching uneffective. A narrow foucs and a clearly set timeline will intensify the energies of coachee and coach and increase the chance of success.

I experienced Cord as a great coach and facilitator as part of a development program. He surprised me continuously with unusual, but very thought-provoking and inspiring approaches. What impressed me most was his ability to understand the situations and recommend multiple options to explore responses/actions, while always giving me the feeling that I was also still setting the direction.

Oliver's unique life and work experience, reasoning process, open conversations and relentless dedication, are key to his success not just as a coach, but also a facilitator and later friend. His workshops are vibrant, insightful, and actionable as well.

Thanks Cord for the process and all what we have learned; thanks to your versability and creativity, we have been able to work on the different targets we defined, first on the professional path and afterwards on behavioral topics. I really appreciated that you are always direct and sincere so just what you are looking for when you want a step ahead.

The Impact of Business Coaching Online

Some coaches say that business coaching for executives online is not as effective as analogue f2f coaching. We have a different opinion on this point. Even in virtual space, closeness can be established between client and coach and an emotional space can be created in which an interpersonal trust relationship develops in a short time.
With more than 10 years of experience in business and executive coaching online, we have made good experiences in this area. The entire coaching process with all modules can be carried out online. Superiors and human resources departments can also be well involved in this way. We even believe that the availability of the coach for the coachee and the ad-hoc help in urgent matters is strengthened by the online constellation. Smaller units and quicker scheduling are possible.

Coaching or not?

Coaching is not training (imparting knowledge) or consulting (giving advice, guidance, suggesting solutions) or mentoring (sharing experience and know-how) or psychotherapy (dealing with more psychological aspects).
