What is Coaching?
Coaching is a series of highly focused conversations about where you are in your life right now and where you would like to be in the future. It helps you to look at your strengths, talents, values and the motivations that underpin your desire to change and move forward. The primary feature of coaching is non- therapeutic and rarely looks at past events. Coaching starts from where you are right now in the present moment and moves forward into the future by supporting you to take actions that will positively influence your future. Many describe coaching as a robust action plan that builds goals and ways to achieve them.
Irrespective of your background, coaching can be applied to any aspect of your life and often people use it to change their life or career path, achieve a better work- life balance, improve skills and performance, build confidence and esteem, build personal and professional relationships, improve staff relations, study skills and communication. Coaching is about empowerment, building your confidence and your self-esteem. The overall aim is to get you learn the coaching style of thinking so you are able to move down the path you choose and ultimately become your own coach.
