Coaching is practically applicable

Sure, coaching as a measure is an investment of a kind that pays off immensely once the person, who has taken coaching, realises how to utilise the skills he/she has learnt and applies them practically in demanding situations that indeed are testing times.

What happens a lot of times is that a person learns the theoretical skills and tips given to him/her in office manuals and handbooks, but fails to apply them in practical situations. Executive coaching, and even business coaching aim at instilling skills in the person so as to make him capable enough to tackle real life situations.

After having an extensive session of executive coaching, a person becomes capable enough to assess the field situations he/she is working in, knows how to work in different business environments, get work done, take the whole team as you move and even gets advice by people who’ve faced similar problems.

How to assess the success of coaching

Assessing the part where the person comes to know that the coaching has worked is simple. Some or all of below mentioned techniques may be used for the same.

1. Mock interviews

To actually assess the part where you feel the business coaching you have taken up has really worked is very easy. There are mock interviews and mock discussions by trainers and coaches themselves. These help the assessor know how much you’ve gained from the coaching programme and what positive change has been bought with the coaching.

2. Surveys by HR

Also, the Human Resource department of the firm the person is working with plays an essential role in assessing the success of coaching. Surveys are given to HR’s at firms which help assess what boxes check out, when it comes to getting positive feedback and affirmative responses.

3. Psychological work-up

After coaching, the psychological bent of mind of the person changes. Getting a psychological work-up of the person before and after the caching can say a lot about the success of the coaching programme.

4. Assessing team play

Since team work is all that it takes, an evaluation of how the team work has been affected can be a tool of assessing how the coaching has fared.
