Unlike Life Coaching, which targets individuals, and has a focus on personal development, Business Coaching is for executives. Business coaching includes executive coaching, corporate coaching and leadership coaching. The focus here is on business expansion, productivity and career development. A good coach also takes into consideration work & life balance concerns. Many companies now offer the services of a qualified life coach to employees who may be laid off or who have decided to retire. Many leading divorce attorneys pay for a one hour consultation with a local life coach for clients who are going through a marriage break up. It’s just good business to provide this kind of service.
The role of a Business Coach is to coach business owners to through guidance, support, accountability and encouragement. Business coaching helps owners of small and medium sized businesses with their sales, marketing, management, team building and so much more.
