Coaching can sometimes seem like mysterious work. In our featured article, Researcher Sally Bonnwell reveals how coaching helps clients both personally and professionally.
According to Ms. Bonnwell’s research, coaching builds:
- improved self-awareness and insight into one’s impact on others
- increased self-confidence and a decrease in limiting beliefs
- increased knowledge of oneself, leading to becoming a better leader
Coaching also improves relationships with others; in particular, coaching helps people:
- improve their leadership style
- develop better relationships with other managers at work
- become less fearful about dealing with conflict
Of course, not everyone’s experience of coaching will be the same.
In our experience, coaching works by helping clients first understand their natural genius and super-powers. Next, clients see how their personal qualities have made them successful in the past and begin to plan a future that plays to their strengths. As a result, many of our clients have achieved better, higher-paying work, arguably due to leaning into their newfound abilities, showing up with increased confidence and taking the steps to pull their careers forward.
