Developing World Class Coaches With its unique but powerful blend of psychological principles and coaching skills, this program will help develop coaches with the ability to understand people and help them reach their full potential in a powerful and structured way. What Does A Professional Coach do? "Coaches partner with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential" – ICF. In essence Coaching is about helping people to attain higher level of performance so that they can succeed in any area, be it in their life success, in their relationship with people, in getting the most of their careers or in becoming a better performer, etc. Professional Coaching: A Driver for Extraordinary Corporate Growth Professional coaches were used to be hired only by among the largest and most elite companies in the world but now this trend has spread to many of the MNCs (multinationals) and GLCs (government link corporations) in Malaysia and the Asia region. This is because there is growing evidence of high ROIs (return on investments) on hiring professional coaches to raise the bar of performance many times more. For example, IBM reported in 2010 a ROI of 563% on their coaching program for sales and marketing executives – ICF. When people in organizations demonstrate extraordinary performance, it is often due to the presence of coaches in their lives. Coaches are the closest and most capable allies anyone can have to help them see their hidden potentials, challenge... [-]
