THE ROLE OF THE COACH
Coaches work with their clients to tap into their own personal resources to discover how they can move themselves forward and take action that allows the client to show up the way they want to show up in life and to realize their fullest potential. Coaching is based on the philosophy that we are all whole beings and each of us has within us everything that we need to be successful. A good coach can help the client to tap into that potential through assisting them to become more mindful and self-aware of how what they are doing and how they are thinking affects their success. The impact of coaching has been proven time and time again in numerous studies and surveys, and coaching is an established, proven profession that can assist clients to attain measurable results.
Coaching is not therapy, which deals with emotional and behavioral problems that are usually caused by a past injury that requires healing. Coaching is not mentoring, which involves consultation and advice based on the mentor’s past experience in achieving the desired result. Coaching is not a friendship, as coaching is based on objective, impartial participation through empowering questions.
AT A TIME AND PLACE THAT WORKS FOR YOUR BUSY LIFE
Coaching sessions can be conducted in person, by telephone or by video, whatever works for you and your life. In fact, most individual coaching sessions are conducted virtually. That means that you can do them from your office during your lunch break, at home or any place where you feel comfortable and where you can focus on you! Individual sessions are typically 45 - 50 minutes long and frequency of sessions varies based on the needs of the client.
