Podcast

Overview

The trend of coaching has increased significantly in recent years, and so does their need. A coach helps individuals uncover their potential, climb up the career ladder and improve their life overall by asking the right questions. Be it a Career coach, an executive coach, or a life coach, people are realizing the importance of hiring coaches and at the same time, people are showing interest in becoming a coach themselves to impact others’ lives positively.

Well, today we have invited Susan Room, The Business Voice Coach, to share her insights with us.

00:34- About Susan Room

  • A former business leader, I retrained as a professional voice and executive coach to help professionals feel, look and sound more confident and present.
  • I am also a passionate gender equality advocate who believes that better balance makes for better business. That’s why I work mainly – but not exclusively – with women.

00:48- What made you select coaching?

There are three reasons for that:

  • I had a wonderful corporate life. The rewards were high, but the costs were also very high.
  • I noticed an opportunity to enable people, particularly women. There was an opportunity to coach other women to speak up and to be confident, and that caused me to leave the corporate world to retrain as a coach.

01:55- What is a voice coach?

  • I coach mindset, body language, speech, and voice because, for me, they are interrelated.
  • How we think really affects how we show up physically, verbally, what we say, and vocally, how we say things.

07:02- What are your own unique perspectives that you bring to a coaching relationship?

  • I have sat in many boardrooms during my corporate life and experienced the cut and thrusts of the boardroom.
  • I have also managed the people and the politics and the processes in corporates.
  • It gives me a really deep insight into the challenges and opportunities that many of my clients face whether I’m working one-to-one with busy professionals or with groups of executives.

11:16- How does a coachee evaluate their coach?

  • In the beginning, the coachee sets goals with the coach.
  • We agree on how those goals are going to be measured and how are we going to know if the coaching is working.
  • I think the coachee is going to evaluate their coach on those measures. There’s also more than that because a good coaching experience often delivers a lot more than just what you’ve agreed.
