WHAT IS COACHING?
“DO NOT LET WHAT YOU CANNOT DO INTERFERE WITH WHAT YOU CAN DO.”
– JOHN WOODEN
The coach’s job is to work with clients to help them articulate their dreams, desires and aspirations. Coaches then help clients clarify their mission, purpose and goals, and guide them on the path to achieving their desired outcomes.
Rather than giving answers, coaches ask the right questions to invite personal discovery and provide support so clients can make their own choices.
A coach listens to clients on a deep level, not only to what they say, but how they say it, and what’s not being said. A coach then asks powerful questions to encourage a client to discover the answers within themselves. People have the power to make decisions in their life. Some just need a little help bringing it to the surface, and the encouragement to take action. The overall goal is to keep moving forward. You have to win a lot of mini-battles before you can win the war. It is with a coach in an open, honest and positive relationship in a safe environment that the answers can be found.
