So why a coach and what does a coach really do? Well, let’s start with what coaching isn’t. Coaching isn’t consulting or counseling. A business consultant will typically use their specific knowledge and prescribe a course of action to achieve an objective. They TELL the client what needs to be done and may even do the work that is required.
In contrast, coaches work off the principle that the clients have all the answers themselves; they just need a little help identifying what they are and putting them into action. Through asking the right, often bold, questions, a good coach will identify the values that drive you, your vision of a fulfilled future and then work with you to overcome the limitations that have, up until now, stopped you from having what you want. They will co-create a detailed action plan with you, then teach you how to access and engage your energy and resources, all the while holding you accountable to your action plan to ensure that you reach your goals.
