In recent years, coaching has become a thriving industry. More and more people are benefitting from the practical help, guidance and accountability that coaching provides.
Although learning and development within a company setting has been considered an important aspect of career development for many years, the rise in individuals seeking coaches outside of the work setting has begun to grow (some may say exponentially) in recent years. This may be for their own personal or career development, to address specific challenges, or simply to set them on a path for greater success, happiness and balance.
The value of coaching is becoming ever more prominent in the public consciousness.This has in turn allowed the coaching industry to flourish and every day, as thousands of individuals are pursuing their dreams of helping others.
In this episode of ‘Conversations With Coaches’ , we had the pleasure of speaking with leadership career strategist and Delenta Insider Katya Kim about her career journey, where she shared some valuable coaching advice, as well as offering her take on the importance of community within the coaching industry.
When starting out as a coach, some may have the tendency to believe that you can make it all by yourself, without support from peers or other coaches. Although, as a coach, you are often going to be building a one-person business, you shouldn’t be afraid of reaching out to others and making the most of every opportunity that comes your way.
Katya is a career coach who supports managers, especially females, in becoming better leaders by gaining confidence, sharing their expertise and overcoming impostor syndrome.We love her work because we share her passion for helping others and her commitment to the importance of business growth strategy at every stage of development.
An established coach of 2 years, Katya, reminds us of the importance of sharing, learning and asking for feedback from coach community members and clients. It’s no secret that in such a highly competitive business as coaching, it’s the most innovative disruptors and ‘extra mile’ thinkers who are establishing themselves most successfully as full-time coaches.As well as sharing her practical coaching insights, Katya explains how Delenta aligns with her values and she enjoys being part of the innovations of the platform.
We always encourage our Insiders to share their feedback and propose new ideas or requirements so that we can continuously improve and provide coaches with the features they want and need. By doing so, Delenta has become a platform designed by the coaches for the coaches as we know exactly what features aspiring and expert coaches are looking for from a coaching software. Our happy customers then spread the word of Delenta and we, in turn, grow by word of mouth. This shows how important it is for businesses and individuals to communicate, ask for feedback and be part of a community.
Moreover, many people have had to adapt to the ‘working from home’ lifestyle as a result of the pandemic, and these communities have given individuals a sense of belonging and understanding. By having a safe space to share, learn and work together, people have been encouraged to socialise with one another. A community also motivates and inspires its members to care about what surrounds them, may it be work, colleagues or culture.
In this episode, Katya talks to us about self-improvement, community, opening new doors, and how Delenta has benefited her business growth.Would you like to make a positive and lasting difference to others, just like Katya does? Would you like to craft a sustainable coaching business from the comfort of your own home?
