Differences between Training and Coaching

People go on training courses to learn a new skill, or to improve an area they perceive to be a weakness. A typical example is a course aimed at increasing individual’s communications or negotiation skills.

Executives endeavour to learn techniques like: ‘motivate your team to optimal performance’, ‘manage difficult conversations’, however they often find that when they go back to the workplace, that these tools and techniques are much more difficult to implement in practice than they are in theory. And if what has been learned is not practiced soon, much of it can be forgotten.

While some individuals can benefit from the one-size-fits all training solution, most people do not.

Coaching is a bespoke solution that meets your unique needs and circumstances, and will help you fast track you to your optimal effectiveness and performance – all of which will serve to enhance your company’s bottom line.
