Project planning is not the most headline-grabbing business function; that is until the project in question goes wrong! But every business must plan projects, whatever the sector or its scale of operation. And projects involve doing something new or different and therefore create a change. This highlights for me the two critical success factors that ALL projects must consider, the human participation in a project, and the purpose of the project.
I meet plenty of people who describe themselves as business coaches but in reality, they are more consultants or business advisors as opposed to coaches. There are also many different techniques being promoted by different coaches. For me personally, the core aspect of coaching is based on the premise that the person being coached (coachee) has the answers.
Last week my colleague shared how great questions help develop success, this got me thinking about the impact of such reflection. When you’ve decided on your goals in business and in life you then need to work towards them. In other words, you need a successful strategy to back-up your ambitions.
