Sometimes a training session is not enough
The learning doesn’t stop at the end of even the best training sessions. In fact, that’s when the learning starts. How do I apply this new knowledge? That’s when coaching helps.
For some people training doesn’t work, or doesn’t work well enough to really kick start change. That’s when coaching helps.
Sometimes there is not a training course that deals with the problem. Or, the training program merely deals with the symptoms, not the cause. That’s when coaching helps.
Do you send an experienced employee onto a course with novices? Sometimes the learning session, doesn’t fit the need? That’s when coaching helps.
Help Comes in Many Forms – Coaching is but one!
Your goal is to develop your team. Developing your personnel does include training. But sometimes it’s not enough and a more direct means to address the problem is needed to get the best out of individuals. You see, it’s less about learning and more about action. That’s where an individualised, coaching approach is needed.
Coaching achieves more when it is externally-sourced, professionally delivered coaching, delivered by an experienced coach.
