What is coaching?
There are many definitions of coaching out there, however my favourite one was shared recently by a client during a session. Her analogy was “I thought it was going to be you driving my car for a little while, but instead you sat in the passenger seat and helped me to navigate. I always had the choice of which way to go and when to make the turns.”
The power of coaching lies in the coach setting you up to succeed. You have within you everything you need to reach your goals. A coach is not like a teacher or a mentor who provides you with the answers from their knowledge and experience, a coach helps you discover it for yourself. And who knows more about themselves and what will work best…than you?
