What is Coaching?
Coaching is a partnership between coach and client that focuses on personal goal setting, self-development, potential outcomes, and actionable steps for creating a more positive future. Coaching is not mentoring, counseling, therapy, training, or teaching.
According to the International Coaching Federation (ICF), coaching is: "Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity, and leadership. The coach manages the process to create a safe environment. The client is accountable for action.”
