Coaching in a Recession

As the economy tightens, Coaching (unlike Consulting and Training) is often in higher demand.
So what should a Coach be able to do for you? 3 Things in my opinion:

  1. Be able to understand you (be a good fit to work with you)
  2. Be able to understand your Business (understand your current Business context)
  3. Be able to help you with HOW to make the necessary changes (Train and Mentor you)

Many Coaches sadly are often not even TRAINED to be Coaches let alone do any of the other things listed above.

Can your Coach do these things?........Like to hear from you.
