International Coaching 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
Life Coaching is motivational, inspiring, positive, exciting and action driven. Always Coaching helps you look at where you are now and where you’d like to be, and assists you in making the shift as you journey through the discovery process to your desired potential. What seems impossible will become that much more possible with the guidance of a life coach. You will explore various options open to you that will enable you to move closer to your goals. The role of a life coach is to keep you focused on your goal and to reinforce why it’s important to you. Clarifying what your internal resources are and defining what you still need, and defining which things are within or outside of your control are some of the most useful functions of a coach. The coaching techniques employed vary from person to person and range from asking powerful, open-ended questions to using creative visualization to see others perspectives. By raising awareness and encouraging you to take responsibility for your life, life coaching can help you rise to your own particular challenge and go further than you ever thought possible.
