Coaching is a way of helping you bridge the gap between where you are now and where you would like to be.
Unlike many counselling and psychotherapy approaches, coaching focuses not on the past or present, but on future possibilities. Coaching uses specific tools and techniques to help you gain clarity on who you are at your core and what you desire for your future.
A coach will help you clarify your ambitions or goals and work with you to create a step-by-step plan to set about achieving them. Through this process, your coach will help you identify any obstacles in your path and will work with you to overcome them in order to fulfil your potential.
Coaching can help with a range of issues. It is commonly used to help people define and realise their career ambitions but can also be used to bring about desired change in your personal life. Coaching can help raise awareness of behaviours that served you in the past but are no longer helpful. It can also help you learn to be more present with yourself in ways that increase your effectiveness as a leader, communicator and all-round human being.
