WHAT IS COACHING?

The International Coach Federation (ICF) defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential”.

At the heart of coaching is the belief that every human being is capable, resourceful, creative and whole. Coaching creates a safe space for you to look inwards and reflect deeply, to build greater awareness of your strengths and often self-defined limitations. The coach works with you through a process of deep listening, powerful questioning and direct communication, to help you arrive at insights related to the goals you have set for yourself.

Through the coaching conversation, the coach supports you to see new perspectives, examine your belief system and build on your strengths and core values. In the process, you gain the confidence to explore new possibilities and make new choices, which ultimately leads you to greater fulfilment and success.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Partnering with a coach will help you to:

  • Find greater happiness and success in life
  • Live with purpose and true to your values
  • Build authentic and empowering relationships
  • Be more resilient in times of disruption and change
  • Lead with confidence & inspire others
  • Discover and fulfil your true potential

According to the International Coach Federation, individuals who partner with coaches have reported several benefits, including improved self-confidence (80%), better relationships (73%), improved communication (72%) and better work performance (70%).
