WHAT IS COACHING?

The International Coach Federation defines coaching as “…partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”

Coaching is a partnership designed to create positive, meaningful, sustainable change. It is a goal-oriented process focused on the achievement of extraordinary results. Based on a style of relating that focuses on the development of human capacity, it is rooted in the belief that we are all capable of finding the right answers. Coaches act as thought partners to support a process of self-discovery to arrive at what lies within. The purpose of coaching is to leverage individual strengths and capacity to realize extraordinary personal and professional results.

WHAT DO COACHES DO?

  • Listen, ask focused questions, reflect back, challenge and acknowledge.
  • Encourage intentional thought, action, and behaviour changes.
  • Inject enough dynamic tension into the coaching process to compel clients to take action and affect positive change.
  • Help clients develop strong personal action plans to close identified gaps and hold them rigorously accountable for achieving the goals they set.

BENEFITS ASSOCIATED WITH COACHING
