Why is business coaching so popular today?

1. The tasks of leadership are becoming more complex. More and more is expected of executives. It's difficult to manage all of this alone. 
2. This is the reason for the increase in speed in our lives. And partly also the deterioration of the economy. And the result is toxic environments. 
3. Our clients want to orient themselves. You don’t want to be harmed in this environment. And get out of there.
