They believe that coaching has a way of transforming and helping people discover hidden and innate qualities that impact positively on their productivity irrespective of their chosen fields.
Lanre Olusola, the catalysts and founder, Olusola Lanre Coaching Academy (OLCA) said businesses in Nigeria, both public and private have the opportunity to achieve greatness by embracing coaching as a major part of their human capital development programme.
Olusola speaking at the maiden edition of the Coaching Icon Awards organised by OLCA in Lagos said coaching is surely one critical thing that gives hope for the future and because of its power and benefits, individuals, corporates and government need to embrace it.
Olusola also noted that to achieve our collective dream of rapid national development and transformation as country, our people need to first take responsibility, find their purpose, equip themselves, consistently perform at their peak, and become personally effective and productive in everything they do.
He noted that starting out professionally as a Life Coach in Nigeria at a time when the environment did not understand what it was presented several challenges, but with clarity of purpose, consistent education, perseverance and the results achieved with the transformation of individual lives and organizational change, the awareness spread, and the need for coaching as a solution to problems, became sought after among individuals and organizations.
