When a business talks to me about their desire to bring someone to facilitate a workshop and offer coaching the question they ask is, what does coaching do for my business?
To answer this question let me start by telling you what coaching is not. It is not consulting, counseling, judging, evaluating or fixing. It is creating a safe place for professionals to grow.
The International Coaching Federation is the gold standard in coaching and they define coaching as: partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
Working with a coach allows for someone to realize what is holding them back from achieving everything they are capable of. Coaches help clients to set goals and provide accountability.
