We hear the term "coaching" quite a lot these days, but the truth is that we don't really know what coaching is all about. To be a successful coach, in any context, you have to first acquire a very specific set of skills and learn how to support others' careers. Employees need personal guidance, not simply someone who will tell them what to do.

Overview

At some point in your life, you've probably had this thought: "If I only had someone to show me the right way." We all need guides in our life, and this is especially true in the workplace context.

Coaching is a combination of mentoring and training. Mentoring is expert guidance, coming from someone who has a lot of experience in a specific field. Training is more related to specific skills and knowledge. Coaches must be able to combine both and adapt their approaches to each employee.

This is what Sarah Canaday has been doing for the past 20 years - maximizing leaders' contributions to their teams. Sarah has worked in various sectors - sales, operations, and organizational development - which provided a good basis for developing a general coaching strategy for leaders and managers. She is the executive coach at the Centre for Creative Leadership, and has written numerous publications for Forbes, Huffington Post, and Psychology Today, besides writing the business best-seller 'You - According to Them'.

Sarah Canaday is also an expert in Emotional Intelligence, which is the prerequisite of all successful coachings.

"Coaching is much more than delivering great performance reviews. It involves a highly specific skillset, one that can be used to genuinely develop employees in a targeted, ongoing way. It can transform their capacity to produce, support their career aspirations, and prepare them for the next level."
