What is Coaching?

"Professional Coaching is an ongoing partnership that helps clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives. Through the process of coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life.

In each meeting, the client chooses the focus of conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations and questions. This interaction creates clarity and moves the client into action. Coaching accelerates the clients' progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice. Coaching concentrates on where clients are today and what they are willing to do to get where they want to be tomorrow."

Brief Examples:

You can use coaching to get stronger results in anything. Here are some specific examples of how people are using coaching. (Coaching is not confined to these areas.)

Businesses use coaching to assure they deal with competing needs in ways that make sense for them and to maintain focus on their long-term goals.

Entrepreneurs use coaching to get businesses up and running, to hold their focus as they build and grow their businesses and to simultaneously maintain balance in other areas of their lives.

People use coaching in their personal lives to assure they are using their time and energy on what is truly important to them and to stay clear about what they want and how they are going to get it.

The Coaching Experience:

Being coached is like taking a course in you (with an objective partner). Coaching provides you with an ideal place to assess and strengthen your performance. Coaching helps you get stronger more satisfying results whether you are at the top or bottom of your game. It is the perfect venue for identifying, focusing on, and building your strengths. Coaching assists people and organizations in identifying blind spots to either eliminate them or compensate for them.
