About Coaching

Norma Reid, professional life coach, executive coach, business coach

Professional coach, business coach, life coach, executive coach, success coach — which one is for me? A coach is trained to work on personal and professional/business goals so whatever your dreams, a coach can help you get there. The line between personal and business life is often blurry, what happens in one area of our lives affects the other; Coaching is a way to gain clarity and focus in both, so that growth and progress can be made. Whatever the title of coach, a qualified coach should be able to coach you in all areas.

The study found the benefits to companies that provided coaching to executives were improvements in:

According to an International Coach Federation survey, clients typically seek help with time management (81%); career guidance (74%) and business advice (74%). The benefits extend to self-awareness (68%); smarter goal setting (62%); a more balanced life (62%); reduced stress levels (57%); and more self-confidence (52%).
