What is coaching?
The International Coach Foundation defines coaching as partnering with a client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
More simply put, coaches help their clients get from where they are now to where they want to be.
How do I pick the right coach for me?
Like hiring an employee or finding a doctor, choosing a coach should involve determining exactly what you are looking for and then doing your research.
How you vibe with your coach is just as important as their credentials and what they can do for you. There are thousands of coaches out there, so find someone who speaks to you and who you feel you want to work with.
Where are sessions conducted?
All coaching sessions can be done over the phone, Zoom or Skype depending on the client's preferences and network capabilities
How long is the coaching process?
The length of a coaching partnership will be determined by the needs of the client. Some factors that can determine the length of a partnership include the type of goal, frequency of the sessions and how accountable client is to their goal outside of the sessions.
How does coaching differ from therapy?
Therapy tends to look at an individual's past and how it affects or manifests itself in their life today. Coaching, on the other hand, focuses on where the client is today and how to help them reach their future goals
I am already successful. How can coaching help me?
Everyone has goals, and coaching isn't just about making people more successful professionally. It is about helping individuals evolve and grow. Coaching can be beneficial in many areas of our lives, but particularly when a client:
- has a challenge or stretch goal
- wants to speed up results in a goal they're already working toward
- is having difficulty making a decision or committing to something
- finds success has started to become problematic (physically, mentally, or affecting other areas of their life)
- feels their work-life balance is off and resulting in unwanted consequences
- has low self-esteem or is in a rut and needs to identify their strengths and how to apply them
