At some point in the future, perhaps within the next five to ten years, the current barriers between personal and professional development in the workplace will perhaps finally give way.
This isn't a statement about wishing to invade the personal lives of professionals, only a statement of fact that all of who we are is powerfully influential on all of how we work, and vice versa.
In truth, after a moments reflection, we all know this. The idea of leaving your 'personal' part of you at the office door is illogical, nonesensical and impossible.
In the future, high quality coaching that is able to deliver enduring value by working with equal levels of skill, training and experience with both the personal and professional influences on performance will be the rule, rather than the exception.
