Coaching is a process in which a person or group is provided with the necessary information, support and guidance to help them achieve their goals. There are many benefits of coaching, with one being that it improves performance at work. Coaching can help an individual identify their strengths, weaknesses and goals. It also helps an individual to identify and understand any barriers that may be preventing them from reaching their goals. Coaching also provides motivation for individuals by encouraging them to take steps towards achieving their goals and helping them develop skills they might not have otherwise learned.
