What is Coaching

Coaching is a partnership between a coach and a client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the client to maximize their personal and professional potential.

During the coaching period, the coach and the individual being coached can generate important insights, gain clarity, focus, and make decisions to improve performance.  The client may often create new perspectives on various dimensions of work and their lives.  Clients find inspiration, courage, confidence, and answers to long-burning questions within themselves.

Why do People Use Coaches

The purpose of coaching is to achieve valuable outcomes, usually related to improved performance, higher profits, career success, organizational effectiveness, or career and personal satisfaction.

At the same time, coaching is about helping people improve their own capabilities and effectiveness so that the results and performance improvements last.

How Coaching Works

Coaching assumes that people have tremendous talent and potential and leaders sometimes need support to optimize their performance.

Coaching is a high-impact engagement to help a leader to develop new insights. The coach and the leader being coached are working together to achieve the outcomes that the client has expressed.

The leader being coached has an opportunity to express and explore concerns, challenges, and feelings. The engagement allows the leader to determine their own outcomes and action steps.  The leader not only solves immediate issues but also develops the capacity to keep improving.
