What is Coaching?

Coaching is a powerful method for enabling individuals to unlock their own potential and to maximise their performance and achievement . Coaching accelerates an individuals progress towards a goal by providing greater focus and awareness of choice. The process also helps an individual to establish clear pathways and plans to enable the goals to be achieved. It is not a mechanistic process, but is a flexible activity where the coach and client work together in a 1-1 relationship of mutual trust and commitment. This provides the client with the specific support they require, when they need it.

The coach has the responsibility to discover, clarify and align with what the client wants to achieve, encourage their self discovery, elicit client generated solutions, and hold the client responsible and accountable for what needs to be achieved. In a coaching session, the client chooses the focus of the conversation while the coach listens and contributes observations and questions. This interaction enables the client to make choices, decisions and move to action.

The core components of the coaching process are:

Helping the client to focus on specific, measurable goals that are realistic but stretching

Helping the client to work out and decide how they are going to achieve those goals

Giving them objective feedback about how they are progressing

Helping them manage their own feedback, thoughts and concerns

Giving them support and encouragement when they need it

For the Client (Coachee), Coaching provides:

Personalised help in focusing on what they need or want to achieve and how they will get there

Support and encouragement along the way

Personal and timely feedback on how they are doing

A quiet and supportive environment to think through and discuss their concerns

An opportunity to be stretched

A practical route to deepen their learning about themselves

A vehicle to build their commitment and make specific plans towards achieveing their goals


Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans:

The moment one commits oneself then Providence moves too. All manner of things occur to help one that would never otherwise would have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man or woman could have dreamed would have come their way.

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, Begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.
