What is Coaching?

Think back to a conversation with a trusted colleague or friend. Maybe you were sitting down to coffee, an adult beverage, lunch, or meeting for whatever reason. You began to have a really engaging conversation about all things – life, career, relationship. It was a great conversation, and you left that conversation feeling lighter, and maybe with some energy about what you wanted to do next. Left with some knowledge that you didn’t have before, and a desire to rework something to change, improve, alter the rest of the day. That process is similar to what coaching is (and it’s taken up a notch).

Coaching is a form of conversation, where a coach asks timely, open-ended questions of their clients. This process allows a client to navigate and walk-through the daily events in their career and life, focusing on the present moment and creating forward movement. Coaching allows a person to identify what they’re desiring, and design their own path for success. Coaching is not a form of psychotherapy. A coach does not provide personal advice or offer solutions. As with most things – the more a client puts in, the more will be revealed.

How is coaching different from counseling?

Coaching is not counseling or psychotherapy. Many coaches are not trained mental health professionals. Coaches and their clients focus on the current events in career and life. The process does briefly acknowledge and touch on a client’s past experiences. This is done to notice repeated behaviors that might be a reason that growth is stunted. It’s a coach’s responsibility to refer a client to a mental health professional, or other outside help, whenever noticed.
