The paper "Coaching for Performance" is a wonderful example of an assignment on management. When defining the process of getting coached by a professional coach, is the teaching or training or a process of development in which an individual gets advice and support from professional on learning on how to achieve good results or goals in life. The person who is receiving coaching is known as the client or coachee Kolb, D. And Fry, R. 1975). Occasionally the term coaching may be used in an informal relationship between an individual who has good experience and expertise than the coachee who is being given advice and guidance on how to handle a situation.
Coaching can also have the same meaning as mentoring. The author argues in a well-organized manner that there are many methods models and methodologies that are used in mentoring or coaching, they are designed in such a way that they provide thinking and new learning skills and behaviors meant to uplift personal augmentation or professional progression. There is also coaching that provides the coachee an improvement in a physical challenge for example in a sport (Williams, P.
2007). In the first week of the coaching, I had managed to gain relatively good skills including high competence in listening, empathizing, influencing others, getting the right feedback and in time, summarising, reviewing, reflection, or self-learning and the use of silence. There was a dire need to work on the development of my skills in other areas including rapport, ways of challenging, preparation and planning of activities the most needed skills is the questioning and set of objectives. I did learn as a coach there are some things I needed to understand more deeply, since the first week while trying to develop my competence and enhance deeply in the areas that I needed more development.
Continuing to increase competencies in areas that I had already posted was very important, this prevents me from losing the competence that I already have (Kolb, D. And Fry, R.1975).
