What is performance coaching?
Coaching is a relatively new profession that focuses on helping people who already have a measure of “success” in their lives, but who want to bridge the gap between where they are and where they want to be in their profession and their personal life. Life coaches help their clients design the life they want, bring out their clients’ own brilliance and resources so that they can achieve excellence and create purposeful, extraordinary lives.
Why has performance coaching become so popular?
The demand for coaching came into being a few years ago when stressed out executives started seeking help in coping with their professional and personal lives. In addition, as companies started downsizing and outsourcing, and baby boomers started turning 50, coaches were hired to ease traumatic transitions and to help people get back on track. While coaching is still most prevalent in the corporate environment, individuals are increasingly turning to coaches for help in achieving excellence, improving relationships and overcoming challenges.
What is the basic philosophy behind coaching?
The basic philosophy behind coaching is that we humans have immeasurable resources of energy, wisdom, ability and genius waiting to be set in motion. We can create the life we want faster and more easily by having a coach who helps us utilize our resources to facilitate change and realize our potential.
How much does coaching cost?
According to the International Coaching Federation, most coaches working with individuals charge about $200 to $400 per month for one half-hour call per week. Executive coaches generally charge more. All told, coaches earn an average of $100 to $150 per hour. Corporate coaches earn more, often $200 to $400 per hour, according to Time Business News.
