Importance of Coaching in the modern day life
Coaching is a significant factor that sometimes can determine the difference between a successful team / individual and that of failure. A most relevant and recent example that we can give is the performance of the Indian cricket team under their last three coaches.
India team under the coaching of John Wright went from strength to strength and for the first time in twenty years went to the final of the World Cup, beaten the Aurtralian side at home and also away and also won significant number of matches both home and away.
The Indian team went though a complete transformation under the next coach Mr.Greg Chappel. It went from a world beating side to a recipe of disaster in a short time.
After a few years of debacle and countless players losing their positions in the team the next coach Gary Kirsten took the reins. The team again underwent a complete transformation but this time for the good. They went on to win a number of overseas series and also became the number 1 test side in the world.
This shows without any doubt that coaching and mentoring can help a long way in bringing out the best in each of us. Coaching I not about telling what to do, it is all about having one person out there who can point you out what is your strength and what are your shortcoming and guiding you to work hard at that.
We associate coaching mostly with sporting and academic disciplines. However coaching is important in most walks of life. Coaching can be described as both an Art and a Science.
Coaching is also a science as it has requires monitoring of the performance of the student, learning and development.
Coaching helps an individual to identify his strengths and weaknesses. At the same time at a personal level it helps you to find your goals in life. The biggest help in coaching is it creates a state of mind which is relaxed and prone to learn and develop. An individual in this state of mind can learn rapidly overcoming shortcomings.
