Who is a Coach ?




"A coach is your partner in achieving your personal goals, your champion during turnaround, your trainer in communication and life skills, your sounding board when making choices, your motivator when strong actions are called for, your unconditional support when you take a hit, your mentor in personal development, your co-designer when developing an extra ordinary project, your beacon during stormy times, your wake-up call if you don't hear your own, and most importantly: your partner in living the life you know you're ready for,personally and professionally."

  • Self-transformation through coaching clients

    By Pratap Nambiar

    As the year winds down, I did some serious reflection on my coaching business. I was on my way to completing five years and 5000 hours of coaching. It was like taking fresh guard, after a reasonably successful run and understanding what more I needed to do to make myself more effective as a coach. At the start of my journey I was very clear that I wanted to help my CEO clients become more successful, and achieve their business performance goals. I also knew that my success as a coach depended to quite some extent on the coach-ability of potential clients. So I took lots of care to assess them to ensure that they would be able to work with me and vice versa in a trusting way that was free of judgment and focused on actions to shape the future.

  • On Leadership and Leaders

    There is so much that the world needs to do better. And it begs for a better quality of leadership. Leaders who know how to truly lead by serving. Leaders who know that it is possible to do good and do well. Leaders who know how to build for the long term.

    Leaders who can rise above the petty politics and follow a simple truth – it is not about me, it is about the organization which is quite simply the people who have the potential to build. Leaders who know how to give more than take. Leaders who have courageous authenticity and are not afraid of speaking or facing the truth. Leaders who drive well-being through positive emotions, positive relationships, and intrinsic motivation. Leaders who ensure that what they and their people think, say, and do are always in harmony.

  • Motivating and Engaging your team

    Most leaders know that at the heart of every productive and successful business lies a thriving organizational culture – an environment where hard working people collaborate intensely and passionately to produce great results. Because this culture is difficult to achieve and replicate, it’s also seen as a critical lever of sustainable competitive advantage. Leaders recognize
    that “keeping people engaged, motivated and committed” as a critical part of their function.

  • Preparing business leaders to fill the leadership pipeline

    It is widely acknowledged in business that the demand for top-notch leadership talent far exceeds available supply. This demand-supply gap is attributable to several macro-factors such as globalization, the “New Economy” and of course, the Information Technology revolution. Equally important is the fact that too many organisations don’t invest in the time, resources and the processes required to build a “Leadership Pipeline” and develop leaders at all levels that will provide the organisation with more people prepared to take on leadership roles.

    In their hugely successful book, “The Leadership Pipeline: How to Build The Leadership Powered Company”, authors Ram Charan, Steve Drotter and Jim Noel show how companies can keep this pipeline “filled and flowing to ensure a steady supply of skilled leaders throughout the organisation”.

  • The Board’s dilemma

    I wrote this article to address one of the many difficult decisions a Board has to make when it is confronted with a conflict between corporate values and financial performance metrics. They have to make quick choices in a complex, ever changing, and competitive world. In fact the perplexing challenges they face can sometimes seem like a choice between the devil and the deep sea. You are damned if you do and damned if you don’t.
