Africa is a growing economy projected to elevate from 3.9 percent at present to 4.1 percent CAGR in 2021, according to African Economic Outlook 2020. In recent years, there has been a mushrooming of start-ups in the region and global corporations trying to penetrate the African market.
It is a rapidly evolving market, and one has to stay updated to the changes happening within the industry continually. However, with growth and continual development comes stifling competition and pressure that corporate leaders have to balance and not lose focus from the organizational objectives.
While dealing with the hurdles of running an organization, people holding leadership positions, and the employees can lose direction and break under pressure. However, a natural progression can have a damning impact on the productivity and growth of the business. In situations like these, business or corporate coaching can induce the right motivation within the organizational structure.
Understanding the Business Context of Coaching
Coaching’s business context refers to corporate coaching, which instills professional discipline in individuals through motivation and unlocks their true potential to achieve organizational objectives individually or collectively as a corporate team.
Corporate coaches assist the core team within an organization, such as executives, managers, team leaders, etc. They help these individuals to self-assess the problems and find sustainable solutions enhancing their productivity and performance.
