Business Coaching: A Closer Look into this Career and the Benefits it Offers

2b LimitlessOctober 4th, 2021

Coaching is about more than performance and growth. It’s about helping people and businesses remain relevant, find fulfillment and create value through a period of unprecedented change, uncertainty, disruption, and opportunity.

“The epitome of an agile learner, is knowing what to do when you don’t know what to do.”

Rapid marketplace changes have hastened the arrival of a new type of work and opened up new possibilities for innovation and skill development. Unsurprisingly, the top five most sought-after skills are all about how we think, learn, solve problems, and innovate — all of which are the foundations of coaching. Being an agile learner is the most effective remedy to solving unfamiliar problems.

In the past where people looked to mentors to give them pre-packaged answers to solve problems that have existed before, now they are seeking out coaches to ask searching questions to solve unfamiliar problems that have never existed before. 

2b Limitless understands this need and works in creative partnerships with businessmen and women to unlock new potential in themselves and their companies.

Leaders are investing more and more in executive, business, and leadership coaches, so they can develop strategic thinking partnerships to help them navigate uncharted waters more effectively.

What is business coaching?

The demand for business coaches and leadership coaches continues to grow. Leaders, owners and professionals are ultimately rewarded for the quality of their decision making and the value they create, and having a trained, strategic thought-partner can massively improve the quality of decisions and value creation.

But business coaches cannot just be experts in business. Where their real expertise lies, is coaching. Business coaches have the skills to open up space, challenge where necessary, help create new awareness, help design new actions and help their clients build a blueprint for performance, success and value creation.

What does a business coach do? 

Business coaches serve as creative, strategic thought partners who create space for professionals to unlock their potential to grow and perform. Depending on the approach that the coach uses, business coaches use a variety of models, tools and techniques to help professionals optimise their talents, manage around their vulnerabilities and be at their very best. Business coaches work to refine the talents, set strategic goals, develop decision making muscles, and help clients build a personalized blueprint for success. 

Business coaches learn everything about the brand and the company, from its value propositions to its potential customers and to the challenges it will face and beyond. Once the business coach has studied everything about the organization and its systems, they shape a partnership with the organization to co-create a bespoke process of development that serves the clients goals, needs and agenda. 

Business coaches use a variety of frameworks to help leaders and organisations build an integrated vision for success. 2b Limitless coaches learn frameworks that connect Goals, Purpose, Success Rituals and Strengths into a live-action plan to drive performance and value. 

Once a set of goals are in place, the business coach strategizes with the client as a critical friend, strategic thought-partner and objective observer to support, challenge, and build actions that drive performance, value and meaning.
