What is Professional Coaching?
Coaching is a unique process that focuses primarily on identifying a goal and creating an action plan to get there. Its focus is in the present and the future, and tends to move in a more rapid and measurable fashion.
The Coach assumes a much more collaborative and peer-type role toward the client. This allows a higher level of personal disclosure (as appropriate), while still assisting individuals to determine their own answers.
Coaching does not emphasize deep emotional excavation, emotional processes or emotional release. Coaching is largely based on accountability, process, and measurable progress. Coaching is not covered by insurers, but may be paid for by employers or result as a viable tax deduction.
