What Is Coaching & How Is It Good For You?

Coaching is the best career decision I have ever made in my life. It has benefited me before benefiting my clients, especially in experiencing the gifts of feeling non-judged and knowing you can completely trust someone with your own secrets.

A lot of people always ask me what coaching means. So I thought I’d dedicate this small post, explaining what coaching is, and how is it good for everyone, despite their age, gender, circumstances, etc.

The following information is taken from the following source: International Coach Academy Pty Limited Module 1, 2002.

The International Coach Federation defines coaching in the following way: “Professional coaches provide an ongoing partnership designed to help clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives. Coaches help people improve their performances and enhance the quality of their lives.
Coaches are trained to listen, to observe and to customize their approach to individual client needs. They seek to elicit solutions and strategies from the client; they believe the client is naturally creative and resourceful. The coach’s job is to provide support to enhance the skills, resources, and creativity that the client already has.” (ICF website, 2006) Coaching is strongest in the United States, followed by the United Kingdom, Japan, Canada, Australia, Singapore and New Zealand, and is reaching more and more countries all the time.
Coaching is a comparably new profession. It blends the best concepts from business, psychology, philosophy, sports and spirituality. Although coaching combines skills from other disciplines, it is a distinct process of supporting others to create an ideal life. Coaches work with clients on a variety of topics: from business and professional issues to personal and spiritual concerns. A coach is an advocate, a sounding board, a cheerleader, an accountability partner, a truth teller and a supporter.
Coaching involves dialogue between a coach and a client with the aim of helping the client obtain a fulfilling life. This is achieved by helping the client establish what is important to them and by clarifying their values. With the client‟s input the coach co-creates value based goals and a plan to achieve them. Through collaboration, the coach supports the client to achieve these goals. A coach offers many things to the client during the coaching process such as:

1. Support to discover the answers within him or her self.
2. Clarification of values.
3. Co-creation of a plan for how to achieve what the client really wants.
4. A sounding board for new ideas.
5. Support in making life changing decisions.
6. Challenge to expand their views beyond their perceived limitations.
7. Direction
8. Acknowledgement
9. Encouragement
10. Resource of informationThe following clip explains further what coaching is:
