Coaching in the workplace has a bad reputation. Not because it's not effective but because of the negative perspective that being coached has: not good enough.
If you want to change that limiting belief, read on.
There are many different types of coaching including skills coaching, career coaching, life coaching, business coaching and executive coaching (to name just a few). At Talentedly, the parent company of Hello Workwell, our coaching model is a hybrid of performance coaching and accountability coaching. Performance coaching helps increase your effectiveness at work, and by default in your personal life, and is based on research and theory from organizational, business, and sports psychology. Accountability coaching, by definition, is a coach who you hold yourself accountable to for setting your goals (the easy part) and meeting them (the hard part). When combined, this model of coaching can transform your work life. We call it worklife wellness coaching and we've been seeing the impact it can have for close to five years.
Many people have asked why we are so focused on worklife wellness coaching. Simple: we believe that it's more effective and transformational to improve ourselves while at work (confidence, communication, conflict resolution, stress management, productivity, health, etc.) because that is where we spend the majority of our waking hours. In 2016, the average time worked was 7.97 hours per day. Worklife wellness coaching uses your workplace, your professional goals and aspirations to transform all areas of your life, both personal and professional. If you can set, and achieve, bold and audacious goals for yourself professionally, you can improve your personal life. We don't just believe it; we know it. Most importantly, we've seen it realized in the thousands of people whose professional lives we've touched.
