COMETSA Radio Worldwide (CRW) presents THE BUSINESS OF COACHING 2023 - 2024 Series, during the monthly COMETSA COACHES LEARNING FORUM (CLF). From coaching proposition, through chemistry session to the Ending Coaching Sessions, this monthly conversation with the Professional & Executive Coache, The LEKGOTLA Way! addresses all the pertinent aspects of coaching as a professional practice. The conversation takes place on the third Thursday of every month during the following slots: Talk 1 (18h00 - 19h00, SAST), Context to Professional Talk-Show Program; and talk 2 (19h00 - 20h00, SAST), Professional Talk-Show Program. The 1st Episode takes place on Thursday, the 16th of March 2023. The Theme is The Path to Follow! Coaching Qualifications, Accreditation and Credentialing. We will be looking at the impact of the following on the development of Coaching Profession: formal education, previous careers and jobs performed, the actual coaching qualifications, the coaching practice opportunity or lack thereof, etc. Does the fact that you had a particular foundational and tertiary education has anything to do with your success or failure in your drive to become a professional or executive coach? Does it matter that you have certificates, diplomas and degrees in certain fields? Does having studied humanities and people related fields give you advantage over the candidates from technical, science, engineering, etc, make you ideal candidate to become a professional and executive coach? Should the graduates of technical, engineering, science, technology and other non-humanities fields forget about becoming coaches or is it possible for the transition into coaching to successfully take place? What about the industries and sectors cultures' impact on the chances of their practitioners becoming successful professional and executive coaches? What prepares you better for the career as a professional or executive coach, being specialist or generalist, and in which kind of the sector or industry? Must you have practised management and leadership before considering the profession in coaching or it does not matter? Are the administrative or technical people able to transition into coaching profession, or must they first move into supervisor, junior management, senior management, executive management and leadership before embarking on the coaching development journey? If people are convinced that they the coaching way of being, and theirs is to become professional or executive coaches, what kind of coaching development and training institutions must they attend? Does it matter whether one coach is a graduate from the Coaching Academy, Coaching Institute, Coaching College, University Coaching Certificate, University Coaching Diploma, a Bachelors Coaching Degree, a Postgraduate Coaching Diploma, a Masters Coaching Degree, or even a PhD in Coaching Programme for that matter? What are all these levels serving the Coaching Industry with? Why is it important to discuss all these levels of coaching professional development? Having said all these, how have you or must we all land in the ultimate, that is, Professional and Executive Coaching Practice? What must you as a qualified coach consider i deciding on becoming either a specialist or generalist coach? Is there value in specialising in coaching in a particular sector only or should we all first start with coaching across all the sectors? What are the pros and cons of either approach? Howe do you know if you will be good at coaching individuals or becoming a group or team coach? What are the differences between these three forms of coaching? What will it take for you to become a good mentor-coach or coaching supervisor? And why are these two so important in the coaching field? Do you know what they are about and what impact do they have in the professional developments of coaches and the coaching profession?
