Does Business Coaching Really Work?

Hypothesis: coaching helps the coachee (and his team) to perform significantly better in achieving business objectives.
Is this a dream or a fact? Experience?

Does Business Coaching Really Work

There is no perfect human being on this planet so I think that everybody in this world including all business related objectives needs coaching.

Coaching is Assisting

Coaching assist one to create and act on the reality that you want to create. The coachee does all the work not the coach - the coach only guides / drives you to the destination. The coachee's commitment and follow through on his / her your word determines the outcome. The coach creates awareness of what is possible to create around tendencies that sabotage you living the life you want or obtaining the results you desire e.g. committing to submitting your taxes in time, reading two books a month, etc.
