What Is Coaching?
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (F.A.Q.s)
Coaching is a process that turns your dreams into practical personal realities. Coaching is about helping you solve your own problems, not telling you what to do. Our process of coaching is simple but highly effective.
Coaches are trained professionals that walk with you to pursue important goals, keeping you focused, reducing energy spent, making it possible to tackle bigger changes at a faster pace than you can on your own. Simply put, coaches are “change experts” who help you take responsibility for your lives and act to maximize your own potential.
A coach pushes you to think, to stretch yourself, to take responsibility for your life and get done what you know you need to do. A coach is also someone who will hold you accountable, challenge you to live out your values or occasionally give you a swift kick in the pants when you need it. A coach believes in you even when you start to doubt.
- Coaching – according to the International Coach Federation coaching is defined as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.” The coach is the subject matter expert at coaching, not necessarily the subject matter expert of the client’s coaching topic.
- Counseling – according to the CoActive Coaching, the boundary between coaching and counseling is not defined by a set of absolute rules or terms. In general, counselors are trained to diagnose and help client with emotional problems, the past or dysfunction while coaches are not. The coach’s domain is future oriented – what does the client want? And then coaching the client to get there.
- Mentoring– a mentor is a wise and trusted guide and advisor. The mentor is the teacher that shares their experience while bringing the “mentee” up the ranks. A coach is not necessarily the subject matter expert in order to help develop the client.
- Consulting – a consultant is an expert who is called on for professional or technical advice or opinions. They are relied on to understand the problem and present solutions. Consulting is unlike coaching because with pure coaching, the answers come from the client.
