Essay Win A Business
In the context of being the best friend to a business leader, the implication here is that in being this best friend, reliance is inevitable and the coachee cannot do without the coach.
For a coach to be facilitating a relationship that enables this level of interdependency, the relationship is destined to be flawed and the successful performance of the business leader stifled.
A best friend has an agenda for you; they are invested in you for themselves.
You are a reflection of them and there are consequences for the friendship; it is ultimately personal.
A best friend holds up the mirror to you when you need feedback and holds you to account when you need to be reminded about who you really are.
Your best friend can be relied upon to be there for you, through thick and through thin.

A best friend laughs when you trip up on a pavement, then reaches down to steady your fall.Whilst many business leaders are involved in choosing who their coach will be, the basis on which the relationship is established can take the coachee into a much more challenging and at times uncomfortable space.A coachee is not a reflection of a coach from a personal perspective so the need to protect a ‘best friendship’ does not prevail and therefore the coaches impartiality, a crucial factor in a successful coaching relationship, is not diminished.You were chosen above everyone else as their best friend, therefore their agenda for you is impacted by their agenda for themselves, so they listen and support from a subjective position.They come from a place where their intent is to comfort and support, which can at times be against all rational evidence and in direct contrast to where a coach is coming from.The coach needs to remain objective and honest; they need to be a ‘positive irritant’ to the coachee in order that they stay present, conscious and focused on learning and evolving as a result of the journey.None of this is to say that a coach may not be perceived as a ‘best friend’ from the coachee’s perspective, but not in the context described above.Surely a great business coach should ultimately focus on enabling the business leader to be the best they can be, independent of their input?A best friend’s investment in the relationship is selfish; a business coach’s investment need to fundamentally remain selfless.An effective coach, whilst indeed establishing a supportive relationship, will set a distinct, objective context for the relationship that’s fundamentally a business relationship.A best friend is invested in you and for you, but with potential consequences that relate to themselves, so they are not objective (nor need they be).
