The word "coaching" has come to represent so many different things to have almost become almost meaningless.
Let me tell you what it means to me, and what you can expect from our coaching partnership.
What a Coach is NOT
Not a Mentor -- a coaching conversation is not intended as a place for advice to be given by the coach
Not a Consultant -- a coaching conversation is not intended as a place for solutions to be given by the coach
Not a Therapist -- a coaching conversation is not intended as a place to resolve issues from the past
Although these outcomes can organically emerge through the coaching experience.
The ICF (International Coaching Federation) defines coaching as "partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential."
As a beneficiary of the coaching experience, this is what Coaching has come to mean to me:
Coaching is a safe and special place that enables you hearing and understanding yourself in bold new ways. Unlike much personal and professional development, coaching enables learning without being taught.
Powerful questions, open curiosity and wonder, and deep active listening focused on the present moment bring forth richer awareness of what's most important to you, and why.
Transformational coaching transcends goal-setting and accountability, revealing territory beyond imagined hoped-for futures and the resistance of past limiting beliefs
Those unfamiliar with powerful coaching conversations might consider them a luxury. But those who have experienced 1-on-1 coaching first-hand know how much of a necessity it is to their personal and professional lives.

A judgement-free zone where nobody gets to be wrong
