The International Coach Federation (ICF), defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Coaches honor the client as the expert in their life and work, and believe every client is fundamentally whole, creative, and resourceful.
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.
The coaching process helps clients dramatically improve their outlook on work and life, while developing leadership skills and unlocking potential. If you are curious whether you
might benefit from coaching, ICF has published a useful infographic,
