Coaching helps to bring potential to work for you and the organization or business as an individual, team member or leader. A coach provides confidential, individual counsel. A coach is a resource, a sounding board, a collaborator.
The benefit of coaching is accelerated learning and adaptation. Coaching is a commitment by the coach and the person who is being coached to engage in the process for the purpose of enhanced competence and trust of self.
A coach listens for what is most meaningful to you, invites you to deeper awareness about what you genuinely desire and asks the hard questions that spur actions and decisions.
The exchanges between coach and client go beyond just competence or performance enrichment. They are intended to inspire experience and radical shifts, and open new possibilities. Learning to trust your own inner intuitive knowledge and guidance is the result and gift of dedicated coaching.
