At the start of a career in finance, most are encouraged to complete academic studies and formal qualifications with professional bodies. These certificates show that tools are in place to do the technical aspects of accounting, book keeping, treasury, etc. What is missing is the personal development which enables professionals to be good accountants, book keepers, treasurers and so on.
A study published by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) in January 2009* showed that, in the UK, the finance profession has yet to fully embrace the benefits of coaching. Wild Empowerment provides the opportunity to redress that.
Nikki Wild strongly believes that providing coaching to finance professionals, at all stages in their career journey, ensures that they are more effective, more highly motivated and closer to the peak of their expertise in their chosen area.
The coaching available through Wild Empowerment aims to enhance the skills of finance professionals to better meet individual and team goals.
(* In the report, entitled The Coaching and Mentoring Revolution – is it Working? the ACCA surveyed 700 members in 170 countries. The study revealed that 85% of respondents see coaching as beneficial but, whilst organisations believe in coaching and mentoring, it is an aspiration, not a reality.)
