Personal Business Coaching
The main objective of personal business coaching is creation of conditions for essential changes in the life of a businessman. And changes in one area lead immediately to changes in other ones. That is why the work in individual coaching is often concentrated not only on the client's company, but also on his/her changes as a personality. The real expected result is movement of the owner (manager) and his/her company to a new round of development.
The main objective of personal coach is to reveal the life potential of client, structure his/her thoughts, clearly define his/her goals and desires, and make his/her actions vector-directed for achieving the set goals. Due to the partnership relations with client, the personal coach leads him/her confidently to achieving the set objectives. The client perceives his/her coach as a mentor, consultant, partner, trainer, and sometimes even as a friend who utterly supports, passionately and devotedly seeks for his/her well-being and success. In the course of joint work the life coach helps to define the goal, develop and go through the planning stages, make decisions and control results. The personal coach motivates, inspires, supports, encourages, relieves of stress, and reduces anxiety, therefore, in general moves "shoulder to shoulder" with the client to achieve the set goal. These are special relations between two humans who move freely, harmoniously in their life dialogue, listening carefully to themselves and to each other.
The life coach possesses a lot of methods, techniques, tools, and exercises. The main tool of a coach is strong spiral questions, responding to which the client gets deeply conscious of his/her situation, gains a new look on situation and, therefore, new solutions, and ideas. A lot of modern business technologies are used in this process, e.g.: time management, strategic planning, SWOT analysis, brainstorming, decision making, and priority setting. The categories like vision and mission as well as the following psychological techniques are used: visualization, reframing, associated and dissociated states, scaling, logic levels, etc.

After all, potential clients of the personal coach are educated, responsible people able to think constructively and aimed at serious work. Usually, they are successful people, which have achieved a lot in life, who set ambitious goals and are ready for risk and changes. Coaching transforms any life problems of modern businessman to specific tasks being solved jointly by the client and coach:
The coaching of personality changes is usually needed by people who are currently in a difficult life situation, which requires rethinking, people seeking to gain inner strength, self-confidence and confidence for the future, people who achieved a high financial status, but do not feel a sense of satisfaction and joy in life as well as successful people who achieved a lot in their lives, but do not want to stop there, seeking to increase their vital force and use their capacity more effectively.

Based on mutual respect and trust, the coach uses an open, flexible, confident and individual approach. The coach works with both long-term global goals, and with today's short-term goals and objectives, leading to the well-being of the client.

He becomes able to realistically assess own situation, come up with possible solutions, take measured actions and come to the planned result.
