The global business-world can be a daunting space, more so for business leaders. With a lot riding on their performance, it becomes critical that business leaders function at their optimum potential. Leadership/executive coaches provide the requisite support and guidance to empower business leaders to achieve their true potential.
Two decades ago, leadership coaching was a different ball-game. With few accomplished coaches available in the industry, a handful of top CEOs leveraged coaching. There was also a hush-hush culture around coaching with leaders working with coaches under the radar.
However, the scenario today is entirely different. As they say, “asking for help doesn’t make you weak, it makes you wise”. Coaching and mentorship have picked up immense pace globally. With the pandemic, coaching also went online, reaching more number of people. Today, executive & leadership coaches are highly sought after professionals.
Each coach brings with them, their unique perspective and experiences. For an instance meet Jae Eun Kim, CEO, Incoaching. She has worked with a wide range of industries and possesses experience of over two decades. Before joining Incoaching, she was associated with LG Communication Center, International Labour Organization, and Ministry of Foreign Affairs to name a few. She has authored four books and has created many video lectures based on coaching practices and a coaching guidebook which is widely appreciated by many industry leaders.
