Specialisation areas

We in ECF see the specialisation (from Lat. specialis — specific, particular, individual) as a profound mastery of a relatively narrow field within the speciality, which ensures the required level of competence necessary for an expert to satisfy the client's demands and needs. Any specialisation is based on the common principles, rules of composition of the coaching process, coaching standards, respective norms, as well as the code of ethics for coaching activity.

The ECF register of coaching specialisations is grouped by coaching areas based on certain specialisations. In ECF, we define coaching specialisation as a narrowed field of activity within the general speciality. For example, CEO's coaching, coaching of sportsmen, coaching of salespeople - these are the areas of specialisation.
Speciality is having a driver license. The area of specialisation defines which mean of transport you drive and what driving category you have. One thing is if you are a car driver, and it is a whole other story if you are the captain of Airbus A380 - the world's biggest aircraft. The same applies to a specialisation of a coach. Specialisation plays a key role - it highlights and distinguishes non-professionals and amateurs from the true experts.

There is a great practical difference between the coaching of a CEO of a large bank or a leading company and the coaching of a CEO of a minor but dynamically growing small-business company. Moreover, specialisation does not simply mean you declare yourself as a CEO's coach. You also have to identify the range of issues you work with successfully: maybe you are efficient in creating of competitive advantage of a company in the market or, for example, in training of leadership qualities of a company's CEO, etc.

If you position your coaching as being sportsmen-oriented, your potential clients want to understand in which sport you are specialising. For example, in game-based or combat sport. For example, you promote your brand as a business coach in sales, and a new consumer will better understand who you are if you mention your main strength areas. Are you specialising in a setup of sales offices? Are you focusing on developing efficiency of sales executives? Maybe you train in B2B or B2C sales? Or do you succeed in B2G or G2B? Precise definition of your profile and your strengths, along with the proves of your accomplishment within the specialisation area, gives you an advantage and convinces the consumer in choosing the right and reliable expert.
