Coaching is an ongoing professional relationship that helps individuals produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses, and/or organizations. Through the process of coaching, individuals deepen their learning, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life. In each meeting or call, the coach listens and contributes observations and questions. This interaction helps to create clarity and moves the client into effective action.
The coaching model is driven by a strong coaching relationship or “working alliance” with the client that is the crucible for facilitating lasting change. In addition, the following are required to guide the overall engagement including:
Clear goal setting
Development of an aspirational Macro goal
Specific behavioral goals
Client’s thorough commitment and coaching readiness for exploration of obstacles to change and strengths that will support the change
