Coach, despite being a word of English origin, has its ancestry in the word KÓCSI, as the products and inhabitants of the town of KÓCS in Hungary were called. The Kócsi were also famous in Europe in the fifteenth century for being excellent carmakers. At that time, the word was also used as a synonym for tutor. In 1813, the word was adopted by Oxford University students to designate their professors who helped them through summer school. In this period, Oxford adopts this word to differentiate physical education teachers from others. From the 1960s, in the US, companies received a strong contribution from the capital market. New shareholders demand increasing profits. Companies decide to lay off their older, more expensive staff, and this creates a crisis in developing leaders in companies. The figure of the coach then emerges as an expert in developing leaders. We now know the word, most popularly, for coaches in Sports.
Today, the executive coach promotes, through periodic meetings, an improvement in his/her client’s leadership skills to achieve the expected results. This enhancement integrates all human dimensions, aligned with an action plan, that lead to the desired future in both professional and personal life.
Leadership transformative coaching is a realistic, focused, and successful model for developing business, executive, and life skills. Through this methodology, I invite women executives to examine their professional and personal moments, and to work together: taking advantage of favorable times to achieve their goals and desires, and integrating unfavorable moments into their business, career and life plans , using them for their self-development, never losing sight of the desired future.
