Coaching is NOT Counseling, Mentoring or Teaching.
Coaching is about inspiring people to set powerful goals. To motivate, challenge and support them to achieve whatever it is that they want to achieve, successfully and quicker than if, they acted alone.
CoachingÂ helps people to move forward and achieve clarityÂ about what they want in life. It enablesÂ themÂ to work through issues thatÂ have held them backÂ from enjoying the life they really want and deserve.
Personal or one to one coaching is defined by a designed alliance agreement between you and your coach. It is based on your own personal expressed interests, goals and objectives, aligned to your personal values and beliefs.
Using techniques such asÂ inquiry, reflection, requests and discussion your coach will helpÂ you toÂ identify your personal, business or relationship goals andÂ enable you to develop strategies and action plansÂ that work for you and will help youÂ to achieve those goals.
Your coach will also provide space and support whilst helping you to move towards achieving your goalsÂ by monitoring progress ofÂ your agreed action plans. Your coach willÂ gently challenge youÂ and hold youÂ accountableÂ for your actions. TogetherÂ you willÂ evolve and modify the actionÂ plan to best suit your needs and circumstances.
Your coach can often act as a sounding board or human mirrorÂ by sharing a different and unbiased perspective and may teach specific insights and skills to empowerÂ you toward achieving your goals.
However you are responsible forÂ yourÂ own achievements and success. You are the one who has to take action, therefore, your coach cannot and does not promise that you will take any specific action or attain specific goals.
