 Are There Different Kinds of Coaching?

There are. Coaching geared toward an outcomes-based plan for the individual or group provides the best results. Here are some different types of coaching available.

Coaching for Change and Transformation: Typically performed at the executive or sponsorship level: focuses on providing consultative insight and perspective regarding change or transformation and is available throughout a transformation or change initiative. Coaching time frame follows the transformation or change contract.

Coaching at the Executive Level: Typically performed with higher level executives: focuses on providing consultative insight and perspective, constructive feedback (which is often hard to get at higher levels), and a talking partner: time frame varies, but often “on call” for the executive.

Coaching for Skills: Purpose is to learn or improve specific skills ( including soft or interpersonal skills): focuses on a specific challenge, task, or project; typically a shorter term engagement.

Coaching for Performance: Focuses on the client/team’s present role, the purpose is to support more effective work habits or to address performance issues; typically a bit longer of an engagement (several months).

Coaching for development: Focuses on the client’s future job: Purpose is to heighten certain skills or change others, encourage long-term development for the purpose of advancing their career; often for high potentials’ typically longer than several months (likely a year or more).
