The different coaching disciplines
by: Bill Burridge

When you talk about ‘corporate coaching’ you may be referring to:

- the coaching of executives (executive coaching) or

- the coaching of employees/supervisors, which is a form of group life coaching aimed at improving business performance in the workplace and where the company is the sponsor.

So let me talk a bit about the difference between life coaching, executive coaching and business coaching ....

There is a big difference between the role that life coaches and executive coaches or business coaches typically play.

The difference lies primarily in the results that these coaches aim to achieve. Without wanting to over simplify things let me put it this way:

An executive coach will look to help his or her client become a better and more effective leader.

A business coach will look to help his or her client achieve better results for the business that the client is running.

A life coach will look to help his or her client to live the life he or she really wants to lead (so improve performance on a personal level).

It follows then that executive coaches need to have an understanding of the dynamics of organisational leadership and what makes leaders effective and successful.

It also follows that a business coach needs to have an understanding of how businesses operate, what makes them successful and the dynamics of running a business.

On the other hand, life coaches need to be skilled at understanding how to help people get to know and appreciate their inherent abilities and talents and how to eradicate the self limiting beliefs that hold them back from being the best they can be.

I hope this helps.
