Coaching and psychology are complementary to each other. The business coach needs to recognize the underlying problems and the untapped talents of the participants, before he rushes with a teaching schedule. Although the HR team does divulge all the relevant information about the skills, general nature and temperament of the participants, the rest has to be deduced by the coach on his own. Here is where psychology comes to rescue.
Professional business coaches are aware of the fact that mentoring stressed out executives is a major challenge and to coach them effectively, they have to use psychology as an aid along with the other designed coaching methods. Psychology offers behavior change models, tools and techniques that in addition to the coaching modules, helps to achieve excellence and shared vision.
Change in behavior, due to stress, speaks a lot about the personal and professional demeanor and at the same time also helps the coach to understand the kind of teaching module he needs to implement. It is imperative that the coach understands and implements the most appropriate psychology based, industry-proven, coaching tools and techniques.
When psychology is included in the business coaching process, it takes on the role of behavior based business coaching. This type of coaching assimilates the research from many psychology disciplines like behavioral, clinical, social, developmental, industrial and organizational theories and principles and converts it into a corroborated, user-friendly model of coaching.
