  12. 12. Anatomy of a Press Release Miami Business Coach – Corporate Expert Reveals Abuses Behind One of America’s Fastest-Growing Professions Miami business coach John Wyche reveals the truth behind one of America’s hottest--yet most abused--new professions. “The good news is: Exceptional corporate coaching helps turn dysfunctional companies around,” he says. “The bad news is: Poor coaching costs companies time and money--and problems just get worse.” MIAMI, FL., November 25, 2005 – Miami business coach John Wyche says executives who want to hire a business coach but are afraid they’ll get taken for a ride by a do-nothing “expert” probably have realistic fears. Wyche specializes in coaching business leaders from prominent mid- to large-sized corporations.
  13. 13. Anatomy of a Press Release Miami Business Coach – Corporate Expert Reveals Abuses Behind One of America’s Fastest-Growing Professions (contd.) “Some of my colleagues will be unhappy to hear it said aloud, but there is abuse within the business coaching industry,” says Wyche, who holds degrees in economics and business from Yale and Stanford. “Those of us who are trying to make legitimate contributions to the field know this better than anyone.” ... The Miami business coach cites six common abuses committed by incompetent coaches and the protections business leaders can use when hiring a coach. 1. ABUSE: The business coach brandishes a coach certification as prima facie evidence of his coaching competence. PROTECTION: Look for solid experience and credentials and ask for references. Certification says nothing in and of itself. Some certifications are highly regarded within the coaching industry, but some require little more than a credit card to earn.
