What exactly is Coaching?
What do want most in life? What is missing? Where are you “stuck”?
Professional Coaching is a strong partnership between a qualified coach and an individual or group (i.e. team/couple/family) referred to as the “client(s)” in a thought-provoking, intuitive, and powerfully creative process that inspires the client(s) to maximize their personal and professional potential. Coaches honor the client as “creative, resourceful, and whole”, and indeed the true expert in his or her personal life and work. In this multi-faceted conversational process facilitated by the coach, individuals focus on the attitudes, skills, and specific actions required to achieve their desired results and thus reach their personal and/or professional goals. In guiding the individual through this process, the coach’s responsibility is to:
- * Discover, Clarify, and Align with what the client wants to achieve
- * Encourage client’s Self-Discovery and thus bring about greater Self- Awareness
- * Elicit client-generated Solutions and Strategies and encourage Progress
- * Hold the client Responsible and promote Accountability
- * Develop the client’s ability to Self-Regulate and therefore become More Effective
After creating greater awareness in the client, the coaching process facilitates greater Self-Management that allows the client to ultimately unlock and harness their greatest potential in many areas. The coaching conversation is goal oriented, aimed at building strong skill sets, and focused on developing and implementing habit driven positive and permanent systems intended to improve the individual’s daily functioning and overall quality of life.
The agenda is set by the client, and can focus on a variety of life challenges to include (but not limited to):
- * Personal Relationships
- * Work Relationships
- * Social Life
- * Work or School Challenges
- * Health & Fitness Challenges
- * Spiritual Fulfillment
- * Stress Management
Coaching creates a safe environment with strong confidentiality where achieving desirous goals while building new skills and improving upon existing ones are equally important. Uncovering character strengths and building on successes are an essential part of the focus.
Coaching is about shifting through various PERSPECTIVES, exploring an infinite number of POSSIBILITIES, and discovering new exciting OPPORTUNITIES; for your relationships, your career, your health and your untapped human potential! If you’re tired of looking back at the past, not where you want to be, and you’re motivated to construct a fresh path forward, coaching is for YOU!
The coaching relationship is a genuine alliance between coach and client that helps clients produce extraordinary results in their personal lives and careers by exploring all challenges, perspectives, talents, strengths, needs, and desires. The relationship between coach and client creates “space” for the client to learn, consider options and design customized actions which then allow the client to move forward towards maximum success.
