What is coaching?
The International Coach Federation (ICF) defines coaching as "partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential."
What coaching is not.
A coach is not a consultant, mentor, counselor, or adviser. A coach does not direct, has no personal agenda and does not solve problems. Rather, a coach skillfully asks questions and listens empathically to inform further questioning, while the client discovers what their heart desires. The coach then challenges and encourages the client towards a new found direction towards achieving their goal.
