Coaching: Who? Why? How?

Coaching has become such a popular title that it has been used in a lot of professions without any training. We at Smartful help you unlock your real potential through coaching.
But first, let us explain the “who, why, how” of coaching.
The personal, supportive environment provided by the coach can foster new ways of thinking, acting, and influencing to achieve significant business results. A coach needs to be trained and certified.
The coach supports personal and professional growth based on self-initiated change (coming from the person who asks) in pursuit of specific actionable outcomes. Ly Kivikas – our coach at Smartful – believes that everyone has the resources to solve problems. As a coach Ly can be the guide through this journey of finding and practising these points.
Coaching is carried out based on the client’s specific needs. You can decide what needs improving. Through that you will most definetely get to better results at work and even in your personal life.
Coaching is proven method for increasing individual performance. Thanks to coaching, you work more efficiently and productively.
