Business coaching is a very broad area, which can be broken down into management and leadership skills, communication, negotiation, sales and marketing and much more.
If you do decide to have coaching for performance in any of the areas mentioned here, one of the unique benefits of working with a business coach is that it is helpful to be able to learn coaching techniques which you can apply yourself in the workplace.
The reason for this is that a good manager is a great coach; therefore, always make sure that when you choose your business coach, you work with someone who will impart coaching techniques to enhance your own skills.
In the corporate environment there are various names given to business coaching, these include:
