What is Coaching?
ICF defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Coaching is a distinct service and differs greatly from therapy, consulting, mentoring or training. Individuals who engage in a coaching relationship can expect to experience fresh perspectives or personal challenges and opportunities, enhanced thinking and decision-making skills, enhanced interpersonal skills, enhanced international effectiveness, and increased confidence in carrying out their chosen work and life roles.
When should you look for a coach?
