Coaching is about helping clients clear a path so that they can make the changes they need to make to reach a goal.
When a supportive person helps you talk through an issue or a plan it is easier to identify and implement the steps necessary to reach your goal.
A Coach will help you identify the obstacles to reach your goals whether they be situational, personal, emotional,
physical or logistical. A Coach will help you define your goals and develop the steps necessary to reach them – an action plan.
The coach’s role is to ask the questions that help you find you own answers and then outline your responsibilities for implementing
an action plan.
Is it counseling or psychotherapy? Coaching is definitely not psychotherapy. A Coach does not delve into your past to identify all of the
problems that might have existed in your life. However, a coach may help you understand that therapy may be needed.
A Coach will likely have assignments for you once the specific services needed are identified. For coaching to be successful, both
parties must be involved in the process. The length of the coaching process will vary. For some people, two to four sessions may
identify and resolve issues. For others, a much longer relationship may be needed as in situations of developing a business plan or
determining what it will take to advance in a current job.
