What is Coaching?
There are many definitions for coaching, from the sporting world it is about instructing, training, assisting in developing full potential. From the business world perhaps the most well known definition is that of John Whitmore's "Coaching is unlocking people's potential to maximise their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them."
For me, coaching encompasses both of these, it is certainly about developing your potential, helping you to learn and to be the best you can be. It's about having the opportunity look at things from a different perspective, to challenge and be challenged, to try new things, to stretch and to grow. Coaching with me provides a safe and confidential space for you to step back and take stock. It is an opportunity to examine your aspirations and challenges, explore your options, review your priorities and identify the solutions and actions you will take to achieve your desired outcomes.
