Did you experience coaching or at least heard about it? Have you ever got curious and googled about the impact of coaching?
An inspiring story about a successful surgeon who wanted to grow but didn’t know how, so he got himself a coach! Not only that he managed to transform himself, but he also managed to change the quality of childbirth healthcare in 120 centres in India.
How do we improve in the face of complexity? Atul Gawande has studied this question with a surgeon’s precision. He shares what he’s found to be the key: having a good coach to provide a more accurate picture of our reality, to instil positive habits of thinking, and to break our actions down and then help us build them back up again. “It’s not how good you are now; it’s how good you’re going to be that matters,” Gawande says.
This talk was presented at an official TED conference.
What the world needs right now are a few more professional coaches like the one who worked with Dr Atul
No country nor state regulate coaching. However, if you are serious about becoming a professional coach, your first step needs to be obtaining coach-specific training. Professional coaches say the No. 1 obstacle to the coaching industry is untrained individuals who call themselves coaches (2016 ICF Global Coaching Study). Getting training to become a coach will give you credibility in the industry and help you build your professional network.
Coach training that is accredited by ICF has gone through a rigorous review process and demonstrated that its curriculum aligns with the ICF definition of coaching, Core Competencies and Code of Ethics. By choosing ICF-accredited coach training, you can be confident that you are getting high-quality training.
