Economic Forecasts Are Bleak
Now, with the world economy in a full-blown recession many businesses
are afraid to hire or are busily laying people off. Nobody really knows
what the depth of the recession will be and how long it will last.
Already shutdowns in various industry sectors, exacerbated by the recent
pandemic, are an early sign of the job losses that the recession is
inflicting on the economy. No-one knows if it will be a V-shaped
recession or U-shaped. What is known is that it will be the most
damaging recession since the Great Depression. Welcome to the New World
where yesterday’s commercial standards and practices and our way of life
have inexorably changed.
The importance of getting re-skilled and obtaining professional
coaching credentials before the bottom of the recession.
Both established executive coaches and late comers into the profession
who offer generic executive coaching services will struggle to get their
coaching toolkit and skills up to a level where they can withstand a new
wave of executive coaches entering a marketplace that has a shrinking
pool of commercial clients.
The lesson from the most recent recession in 2008 was that if you're
thinking of becoming a coach and you suspect there is going to be a
prolonged recession, you need to get re-skilled sooner rather than later
and be ready before mass professional layoffs send thousands more into
the generic executive coaching business. In fact, a sound strategic move
is to obtain specialist coach training while you still have a position
that pays your bills. You simply need to distance yourself from the
generic, mass-market executive coach pool if you are going to stand-out
and be successful.
Bottom Line -The Need to be a specialist coach to stand out in the
If you're thinking about becoming a coach you need to become a
specialist coach with the best available toolkit to rise above the
crowd. You need to become a coach that clients from around the world
will seek you out because of your specialist coach skills and tools.
Quality sells itself and will raise you above others.
Traditional executive coaching tools and models fail to deliver:
Traditional executive coaching, built
around out-dated change models falls well short of developing
lasting, measurable behavior competencies. Most executive
coaching is ineffective as it ignores
individual behavioral patterns that control the execution of the skill
or competency to be enhanced.
In traditional executive coaching the participants eventually
revert to habitual patterns. It's an
expensive venture for a short-term "buzz." Thus, the challenge
for people development professionals is to enhance organizational
effectiveness with lasting, measurable behavioral change and a
development model that
strengthens and sustains individuals in the specific behavioral competencies
all about what the coaching client needs are in today’s changed world.
Wellness, quality of life and performance -the
prime drivers of the new economic, post pandemic landscape !!
When businesses are under pressure to perform in a recession, the
standard process is to maximize workers and resources towards their
highest-productivity purposes. However, organizations need to ensure
they are providing the right behavioral and mindset supports to raise
performance levels consistently and permanently.
Productivity boosting behaviors is not about using outdated executive
coaching models of change. To perform at a consistent high level
requires a holistic, brain-mind-body approach using neuro-behavioral
growth and development models and techniques.
Organizations need to better develop and prepare their talent pool for
the rocky road ahead. A new generation of leaders will emerge to
rebalance priorities and prioritize the long-term behavioral health of
its people. This change, in and of itself, will make much more change

Mainstream / generic workplace coaches are trained to be goal and skill
focused. Whereas, High Performance Behavioral Coaches (in the workplace,
educational institutions, healthcare etc) are focused on the person's
environment affecting their performance, happiness and well-being. Both
work successfully together, however, the High Performance Behavioral
Coach uses a brain-mind-body approach to address developmental needs
whereas the generic coach must stay away from the mental / physical
domains and the psychological change models they are not trained in.

assistance they need eg; brain-mind-body or positional skills coaching
