What is coaching ?

First, I would like to remind Coaching definition according to ICF (International Coaching Federation); the most important coaching association in the world.

“ICF defines coaching as a partnership with clients in a creative and stimulating process that inspires them to maximize their potential and professional potential; which is really important in an ever-changing context.

The coach is convinced that the client is the expert of her/his personal and professional life and believes that the client is resourceful.

To be in alignment with ICF, the coach’ responsibility is:

  • Discover, clarify, and align with your goals, with what the client wants to achieve
  • Encourage client self-discovery
  • Arouse the client find her / his own solutions and strategies
  • Hold the client responsible and accountable”

In other words, the coaching process helps you to :

  • clarify and define your objectives
  • go forward,
  • improve your leadership skills in a long-lasting way,
  • point out the obstacles you face, especially the ones you cannot see; while other people see them.
  • overcome your fears,
  • think differently,
  • find clarity, vision, motivation

Some questions that bring women and men to coaching are :

  • How do I leverage my strengths?
  • How do I move up in an environment that reflects my values?
  • How to find a wok- life balance?
  • Is there a “right” way to manage people?
  • Should I make a career change or should I stay in my job?

Some objectives you would like to achieve :

  • to accelerate results,
  • to increase self esteem and /or self confidence
  • to be able to say “NO”
  • to dare focus on your priorities and then stop being available for everybody
  • to influence and impact on communication
  • and yours?
