What is Coaching?
To understand what coaching is, let’s perhaps take a look at the acknowledged definition. The International Coaching Federation (ICF), of which I am a trained member, defines coaching as: a partnership with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspired them to maximise their personal and professional potential. Coaching is a client driven process that’s distinct from other service professions, such as counselling, mentoring, training and consulting.
Coaching provides an invaluable space for personal development. It helps you learn how to reach your potential and create lasting results. Coaching holds the space for learning as opposed to teaching. Working with a coach can help you clarify your goals, identify the obstacles holding you back, and then come up with strategies for overcoming each obstacle.
Sessions can be held on-line or face to face.
