Coaching is about supporting individuals to create clarity and realise the potential within themselves. A coach walks alongside the client through the journey that they are taking, helping to create manageable actions to move towards their overall goal.
It aids getting from A-B perhaps quicker than you would on your own by asking pertinent questions and coaching models that have a certain amount of simplicity attached to them.
My job as a coach is to facilitate a goal-driven journey with the client. It is one of mutual respect. The coach’s role is to make sure that the client is completely responsible for their own outcome and to help them recognise that they have all the answers and resources to succeed. They are the expert in their life, not the coach.
The agenda of the coaching sessions are entirely up to the client. The coach will not instruct the client in any way shape or form in terms of what he thinks the client should be working on or how they should be approaching things or what they could be doing in order to be successful. That will all be coming from the client.
