How Coaching can Help.

How does Coaching work?

Coaching is goal and action oriented. A coach has unshakable faith in the power
of her/his client’s resources and in their intention to actualize their goals. They
believe that clients have the freedom and capability to choose their course of
action as they act on their lives rather than react to it.

The general steps in the coaching process are:

  1. Assessment of personality, strengths and areas of development
  2. Identifying a clear vision of what you would like to achieve
  3. Developing a precise roadmap toward achieving your goals
  4. Responsibility and accountability through action

“If we all did the things we are capable of, we would astound — ourselves. “
Thomas Edison

Who would benefit from coaching?

People who want to change something in their life

  • People who want to switch or improve their career path
  • People who feel like something is missing from their lives
  • People who seek a roadmap to navigate transitions
  • People who have nagging suspicions they could be doing more with their life

Psychotherapy vs. Coaching

Coaching is oriented towards the present and future rather than the past.
It is task-centered and facilitates a higher level of life performance rather than
emotional healing.

“Therapy is like helping someone with a broken leg walk again. Coaching is like helping them run the four minute mile.”
Tom Grant Sydney University, 2000
