Regardless of the type of coach all coaches share one goal: equipping people with the skills, knowledge, and opportunities that they need to develop their capabilities and achieve success. However, each of the below types of coaching varies in the specialist business knowledge and training required by the coach to perform effectively. In particular, coaches working in an organizational environment require greater business acumen, a broader understanding of the organizational context in which an individual works, and more rigorous training in professional skills development, group dynamics, behavioural change and organizational culture and performance. Successful coaches have been trained to work with human behavior in an organizational context, understand what it takes to change and know how to separate core problems from the rest. Certified Master Coaches (by Dr Skiffington) are specifically trained in understanding, assessing and developing individuals in the context of their workplace situation.
