How an all night-out alumni party changed my life?
After 13 years, I met one of my ex-colleagues in July last year in an alumni meet. Back in 2000, we both were working as IT service engineers in a small company in Bangalore. Today, my ex-colleague is one of the Senior VPs of a large investment bank in the US. I was amased to see his growth and when I was very inquisitive about it, he unfolded his story and introduced me to the amazing world of professional coaching.
He attributed much of his success to the Leadership & Life coach he hired 2 years ago. That coach turned around his life completely. Although my request for the contact details of that coach was turned down due to a contract between them, he encouraged me to hire a coach for myself. I found a lot of coaches listed on the ICF website and I reached out to few of them. Unfortunately, I could not find a personal synergy with any of them and the whole experience was not very good. I continued my search on few other sites which list coach profiles, but there too the experience was not pleasant.
This urged me to ponder. Wouldn’t there be many like me who are looking for a coach, but find it hard to get a suitable one? I started talking to a lot more coaches and some of their clients subsequently. The insights were interesting.
For a person looking for a coach, there is not a place where he/she can conveniently find & talk to a suitable coach matching up with the goals and personality. The search seems to be indefinite. The second problem is the expectation vs. delivery mismatch during coaching after signing up with a coach.
Now on the other side, with a coach, over 60% of their time is spent on marketing and business development activities for generating new leads. They are not very happy with this as they would like to do what they are best at, which is coaching people. The other problem faced by these coaches is managing the entire logistics of coaching engagement with their clients. They use multiple tools for scheduling, coaching, interacting, collecting payments, etc. They like to have a better way to manage this as this also consume a lot of their time which is otherwise could have been utilised for coaching more people.
Coatom was born from these insights.
