Growth Edge Leadership Podcast


Aug 19, 2019

Today we’re speaking with Josh White for the third installment of the Coach’s Corner. Today we cover what coaching is, what it isn’t, and why so many companies have seen that it pays to provide employees with coaching. The bottom line is companies get better performance, better teamwork, and increased accountability when coaching is involved. Having someone in your life who is dedicated to giving feedback, committed to your success...well, it’s priceless.

But don’t think that the coach does the work for you. Hardly. Having a coach to point  you in the right direction is only part of the battle. The heavy lifting has to be done by the coachee. So don’t kid yourself. No sense in employing the help of a coach unless you’re ready to roll up your sleeves, hear the hard truth about yourself, and take the (oftentimes) painful steps that lead to change.

In today’s episode, Josh and I talk about what makes a good coach, what a coach-coachee relationship looks like, how a coach can help you through setbacks and challenges, and when/why you might want to hire a coach.

In today’s episode you’ll learn:

  • What is coaching
  • Why it pays for employers to provide coaching services for their employers
  • What a coach-coachee relationship is like
  • How to find a good coach
  • The ways a coach can push/challenge the coachee
  • About paying for coaching versus seeking advice from your support circle
