Myth about coaching is often the road block for people not to incorporate coaching in businesses or organization to achieve success or business results.
The common myths among people are:
Coaching is not for successful people - In reality it is the successful people who indulge more in coaching. Because they know that they constantly need to update themselves with skills, strategies and techniques to stay top on the ladder. Making their best skills achieve 200% is their motto.
Coaching causes co-dependency - The general idea of people is that coaching causes them to depend more on coaches for their success and motivation. However, the truth is coaching empowers people to know their strengths and techniques to motivate themselves and not cause dependency.
Coaching is short-term training - A coach is not someone who delivers training and then disappears. A coach understands human behaviour and traits and hence is aware that people can go through periods of lack of confidence, low energy levels and frustrations. Coaching is long-term process helping individuals succeed consistently by tailoring to their needs.
Coaching is like counselling or therapy - Therapy focuses on the issues in the past and is aimed at healing the scars of the past and future. The focus of therapy the root-cause of the problem. While coaching is restricted to the person’s life in the organization- his performance and the related factors. There is exploration of family history or changing of the personality. The focus of coaching is to identify the true potential of the person, guide through goal-setting and improve the performance.
