What is Coaching?
Coaching is a whole person approach to development based on the interpersonal dynamics unique to each individual. While coaching techniques or models may be fairly “universal” the development of each individual is personalised and tailored according to the needs of the client (the person being coached) at the request of the organisation (sponsor). Thus coaching is a one-on-one development process between the coach and the client sponsored (or paid for) by the organisation requesting the coaching. All parties involved in the coaching relationship will agree to the coaching objectives and as such all will be aware of both the objectives and the ideal outcomes. The content of each coaching session (between the client and the coach) however, remains confidential. The coach includes sponsors in the evaluation of progress and provides generous feedback to the client and the sponsors.
Coaching received (depending on the client’s need) from an external coach is more effective than “in-house” coaching. The main reasons for this being that:
• There is no “authoritative” relationship between the coach and the client facilitating the development of trust, an essential component in the coaching process.
• Neither the client nor the coach is able to engage in any form of “organisational” comparison (rank/status/salary, etc.) and all communication between the client and the coach can be open and honest.
• Corporate coaching
• Executive coaching
• Leadership coaching
• Transitional coaching
• Development coaching
• Targeted skills coaching
