In this episode, Steve Kiges, co-founder of The Coach Training Academy, discussed why coaching has become the “in” thing these days, having become more and more popular with business, governments, and politicians. The science of coaching has greatly matured from the avenue of sports coaching to a process that has become integrated into our everyday lives as a way to get feedback and become grounded.
Steve went on to explain how to choose a great coach for your team. He said that the coach should interview prospects as well as prospects interviewing the coach to ensure that there’s a great fit on both sides. The coach should also check in regularly with the client to ensure that the client is getting the help s/he needs and that there is an accountability process for each client.
