What is coaching?
That is a great question to ask and one which I find difficult to answer directly and succinctly. So I will try my best here.
Coaching is a process.
Coaching helps you look at where you are now and where you want to be.
Coaching helps you ask questions of yourself and find your own answers to those questions.
Coaching raises your self-awareness.
Coaching helps you define who you are and who you want to become.
Coaching helps you look at your goals and find ways of achieving them.
Coaching is a journey.
A good coach will therefore work with you and accompany you on your journey.
A good coach will help you understand yourself better.
A good coach will help you define what it is you really want and then help you get there.
A good coach is your champion, your support and helps you take steps, big or small in the direction you feel you need to go in.
A good coach will challenge you, your values and your self-beliefs to help you understand them better.
A good coach takes you forward.
A good coach will help you find the answers to your searching questions.
That is why I love coaching.
