What is Coaching? Why is it important?
A profession that is yet to get widely discovered, Coaching is an underrated skill. A coach helps individuals make progress in their personal or professional lives. Ram Ramnathan, a senior corporate professional and Master Coach is our guest on the podcast today. Ram believes that a coach is a person who works with another person with great respect and equality. He states that a coach does not provide advice or solutions but just creates awareness! He believes that coaching and mentoring are very closely related. Expanding individual coaching to large corporates levels is where coaches can contribute in maximum capacity. Ram believes that coaches can help the organisation meet their goals/visions and individual aspirations; and doing it on a larger spectrum is highly cost effective. Coaches help professional managers balance their communicative, collaborative and delegatory skills along with controlled aggression. Ram firmly believes that coaching can help an ordinary manager turn into a strong leader!
