Coaching

"If you want to go quickly go alone; if you want to go far go together."

–African proverb

What is professional coaching? International Coach Federation defines coaching 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. Standing on this foundation, the coach’s responsibility is to:

  • Discover, clarify, and align with what the client wants to achieve

  • Encourage client self-discovery

  • Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies

  • Hold the client responsible and accountable 

 

This process helps clients dramatically improve their outlook on work and life while improving their leadership skills and unlocking their potential.

According to a Gallup study (2015), 68% of American workers are disengaged. Glassdoor (2015) estimates that the cost is between $450 billion to $550 billion. How much is your company losing?
