What is Coaching?
“Professional Coaching is a professional relationship that helps people produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses or organizations. Through the process of coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life.
In each meeting, the client chooses the focus of conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations and questions. This interaction creates clarity and moves the client into action. Coaching accelerates the client’s progress by providing greater focus and awareness. Coaching concentrates on where clients are now and what they are willing to do to get where they want to be in the future.”

Coaching is not:
Therapy: Therapy focuses on past issues.
A coach focuses on the present and future.
Mentoring: A mentor is an expert in a field or within a company who guides others to move forward within the company or field.
A coach is an expert in the development of people, and works with clients shoulder to shoulder to move forward on their own path.
Consulting: A consultant delivers an end result that meets a specific need or goal.
A coach emphasizes the client’s responsibility for results and focuses on the client’s needs or business needs if appropriate.
