A coach is not like a trainer who imparts training on skills on how to run a race, a Coach is the one who encourages an athlete to win the race and “champion the gold medal” – not just be in the race.
Coaching clarifies values,goals and activities and identifies obstacle to achieving a person's goals.
Professional coaching can be defined as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential, which is particularly important in today’s uncertain and complex environment. Coaches honor the client as the expert in his or her life and work and believe every client is creative, resourceful and whole. Coaching often called personal coaching or simply coaching, is a one-on-one, collaborative process in which a trained professional coach helps you, the client, achieve your personal life goals. These goals may include just about anything: more self confidence, weight loss, career change, better relationships, and many more. People from every possible age, background, and occupation get coaching, but they all have one thing in common: a desire to achieve something more in their personal or professional life. Whatever your goals, a professional coach gives you motivation, accountability and support, keeping you focused and taking action from week to week..
