What is coaching?

Coaching is an effective way to help other people achieve their goals.

The 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.”

The Association for Coaching describes it as a “facilitated, dialogic and reflective learning process that aims to grow an individual’s awareness, responsibility and choice.”
