The coach ensures that clear developmental goals are set and holds the trainee accountable for their execution.

A good business coach will have an objective point of view, and the ability to quickly identify problem areas that maybe you could not see. They may also be able to offer solutions or strategies you might not have considered, or push you out of your comfort zone so you can take your business to the next level.

1-to-1 coaching explores the purpose of why the trainee does the job they do and how they are connected to the company.
