What is coaching?
In the coaching partnership, the client takes the lead in determining goals, and with the support of the coach, discovers personal strengths and utilizes these to move forward and create positve changes. Coaching is very different from counseling, therapy, or mentoring. According to the International Coach Federation, the role of a coach is to help the client discover and clarify goals and aspirations, encourage self-discovery, elicit client generated strategies and solutions, and provide accountability to help individuals improve their outlook on life or work to reach their potential.
