This month at Coaching Out of the Box® we have been discussing competitive advantage, those attributes that allow an organization to outperform its competitors. It sounds great to have something that sets you apart, but you may be curious how to gain your competitive advantage.
Competitive advantage results from matching a unique ability that you or your organization acquires or develops, and that cannot be easily imitated, to the opportunities available to you. These core competencies give you the advantage, by creating and delivering value to your customers in your chosen field.
So how does all of this apply to coaching? Whether you are coaching others, a leader of an organization, or an individual looking to further your career, having the core competencies of coaching will give you a perspective by which to look at everything!
The core competencies of coaching include:
A. Setting the Foundation
B. Co-creating the Relationship
C. Communicating Effectively
D. Facilitating Learning and Results
