When a staff member knows more about their industry; they will see more ways of undertaking jobs. Unless they have a good attitude though;  knowledge might not get used.
In today’s fast changing world, knowledge and attitudes change faster than ever.

If you want the best staff, you need to pay attention to staff selection, motivation and education.

 

You Can Work as a Coach in Media

By ACS Distance Education on January 31, 2019 in Careers, Jobs Success & Psychology | comments
Coaches may find work in electronic or print media in writing or broadcasting. Books, articles, audio and video recordings are all tools that can be used to help motivate and inform the people being coached. The professional media (e.g. newspapers, TV, radio) may also be important employers of coaches (e.g. sports coaches commenting on sporting events).
 
All coaches need to learn and the best way to learn is through taking courses, workshops and seminars. Some of those who teach coaches are teachers in educational establishments, others are coaches who offer tutoring to students.

Coaching for Work

By ACS Distance Education on January 31, 2019 in Careers, Jobs Success & Psychology | comments

Coaches are supported by a range of services, including: coaching industry bodies, professional supervision, bookkeeping and other administrative services. Coaches may become involved in industry bodies, or may actually work for these organisations.

The type of work undertaken by people in this sector can be quite variable. Those working for organisations that represent the coaching industry are likely to spend time assisting coaches, producing newsletters and industry reports and organising events.
