Implementing changes is a daily challenge for many organisations. The issues can range from digitisation, constantly changing business models and demographics, to the ongoing trend of globalisation. Additionally, team managers have to tackle increasing intercultural interdependencies within teams. Having a continuous development of organisations and its employees is now an indispensable part of the corporate world. To solve these challenges, coaching and mentoring, in today’s day and age, has emerged out to have profound benefits for organisations. As an effective method, coaching plays a critical role in ensuring personal development, long-term behavioural changes, work-related attitude, and optimum knowledge transfer. In comes Coachub with its innovative digital business-coaching platform and a coaching app offering a new and interactive way to impart coaching. “We support companies across the world to implement coaching as a strategic personnel development measure in a scalable way and to offer it to every employee regardless of location,” says Yannis Niebelschütz, Founder and CEO of CoachHub.
CoachHub, with its mobile coaching cloud platform, provides a comprehensive coaching approach and framework. The platform uses the latest research from behavioural scientists and positive psychology to develop a sustainable and effective coaching approach to have a positive impact on a personal and organisational level. “In cooperation with our scientific advisory board, we have developed our holistic approach to business coaching, which focuses on two essential aspects of successful leadership in the digital age: Grow as a person-Inspire as a leader,” mentions Niebelschütz. CoachHub platform includes the ‘dashboard’ that provides an overview of the development of the coaching program for the HR department and management, contributing to making coaching successful by keeping it transparent and measurable, while also having additional features for accounting.
Moreover, the CoachHub app, both for iOS and Android, provides an interface for the employees (coachees) to meet their coach. To get the best match, the coaches are matched via an AI-based algorithm. Coachees can hold the coaching session through the video chat function, which will be a personal coaching session with top business coaches. App-based coaching enables the coachee to take full responsibility for their coaching, making learning more flexible, by being time and location independent for both the coach and client. For example, if a prospective client wants to introduce a new culture or a new way of working (e.g., agile project management), CoachHub approach assists the existing managers to implement the transformation by imparting the required coaching via the app. The coaches available on the app are certified with at least 500 hours of coaching experience as well as have a wealth of leadership experience and are members of one of the significant coaching associations. With the right coaches training the managers, they can then lead their employees more effectively and guide them through times of change.
CoachHub brings along the pool of over 300 certified business coaches and video coaching technology for web and mobile devices, making this their unique value proposition in the market. Additionally, few competitors are developing such similar models, and they too have their focus on the placement of coaches, not on the technical diversity or sustainability, that coaching can offer as a holistic product, while, CoachHub has both. Niebelschutz provides a realistic cost comparison that shows companies spend almost three times less using the CoachHub platform, in contrast to when they organise coaching themselves.
Envisioning the future, CoachHub not only will be a tool for leadership coaching, but their vision is to facilitate every employee with the best-suited coach as per their requirements. “We at CoachHub already live this vision today. All employees can develop themselves further with the help of a coach,” concludes Niebelschütz.
