what is coaching?

Coaching is a process by which the coach partners with the client in a confidential, thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the client to maximize his or her professional potential.

The coach’s responsibility is to:

  • Discover and clarify what the client wants to achieve;

  • Encourage client self-discovery;

  • Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies; and

  • Hold the client responsible and accountable.

How Does Coaching Work?

There are four steps to coaching:

I. Creating Awareness

Helping each client to discover for him/herself new thoughts, beliefs, perceptions that strengthen client’s ability to take action and achieve what is important

II. Designing Actions

Working with clients to identify opportunities for learning and action that will lead to agreed-upon coaching results

III. Planning & Goal Setting

Assisting each client in identifying and establishing development goals that address the client’s concerns/ area(s) for development

IV. Managing Progress and Accountability

Keeping the client on track and promoting self-discipline by directing client’s attention to the coaching plan, outcomes, and agreed-upon courses of action
