Coaching is a relationship which is designed and defined by the Client with the Coach in their relationship agreement. It is based on the Client’s expressed interests, goals, and objectives.
Coaching is a process of learning where the Coach uses inquiry, reflection, requests, and discussion to assist a Client to identify personal and/or business goals, develop strategies and action plans intended to achieve such goals. The Coach provides a place for the Client to be held accountable to themselves by monitoring the Client’s progress towards implementation of the action plans. Together they evolve and modify the plan to best suit the Client’s needs and the environmental relationships. All along the learning journey the Coach acts as a human mirror for the client by sharing from an outside and unbiased perspective what they are observing about the Client. The Client is responsible for his or her own achievements and success.
A Coach does not provide counseling, therapy, or “answers” to the Client. Coaching is distinctly different from therapy, counseling, advising, and consulting. It has been said that therapy looks back, and coaching looks forward.
