Have you ever wondered what coaching was all about? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The funny thing is, there was once a time where my opinion of coaching was slightly unsavoury. Conditioned by others with comments thrown at me, like the shady words of ‘those that can’t do, coach.’ And then there was the unknown mindset of ‘isn’t coaching just people paying other people, to be told what to do?’⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How wrong were they! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

ICF defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Coaching is:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✔ Working collaboratively at the same pace. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✔ Conversations with purpose.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✔ Breaking new ground which can be challenging yet encourages a deeper conversation (& outcome). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Coaching can:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💡 Go deep. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💡 Identify possibilities.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💡 Change the way you think (e.g. remove limiting beliefs that could be holding you back). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Coaching will guide, challenge and encourage you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Coaching IS NOT:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
❌Mentoring, Counselling, Training, Management and Consulting. These are very different things. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Coaching is confidential, safe and has been proven to work. 99% of people who invested in a form of coaching found that they achieved the results they were after and more. Now that is a great ROI (return of investment). ⠀⠀⠀
