Profession business coach

Business coaches guide employees of a company or other institution in order to improve their personal effectiveness, increase their job satisfaction, and positively impact their career development in the business setting. They do this by leading the coachee (the person who is being coached) to resolution of their challenges by their own means. Business coaches aim to address specific tasks or reach specific goals, as opposed to overall development.
