Has the pandemic been a wake-up call for you relative to your career?
In the next few minutes, I’m going to show why, right now, skilled professional coaches are in high demand and there’s even more opportunity on the horizon. I’m Kevin Glenn, founder of Sapphire Coaches. I spent over three decades in the corporate world as a manager and senior executive.
Sapphire Coaches is accredited by the International Coaching Federation and our team has helped hundreds of coaches get credentialed by the ICF. So there are a few key things you should know about the state of the coaching industry. And whether we’re talking about business coaching or life coaching, we’re talking about people first and foremost. So let’s look at major corporations around the world that have been using coaches for years. The list is impressive…companies like Apple, Google, and McDonalds to name a few.
Coaching is a tool that companies can use to help their people learn and grow and become more productive in their work environment. It helps managers and leaders build trust and work more collaboratively with their peers and their teams.
The pandemic has created an environment of confusion and uncertainty about the future. People are uncertain. Companies are uncertain. And some companies are actively employing coaches to help transition their cultures and adapt to new ways of working with their people. Many people these days are working from home and it creates a whole new set of considerations for companies. Coaches are on the front-line helping people and companies navigate the new world as it unfolds.
At the individual level, people are dealing with their own questions and uncertainties about the future, and many are starting to rethink what their careers might look like. They’re looking at how to leverage what they know and what they’ve done in a way that is relevant and helps others. In a way that’s a little more human.
