About Coaching

The International Coach Federation is an excellent resource for detailed information about the definition and process of coaching. As a Credentialed ICF member, I invite you to take a few moments to visit their site and learn more about what coaching is and is not, Code of Ethics, research studies and more.

Here is an excerpt from the ICF website Coaching FAQs:

What is professional coaching?

ICF 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

This process helps clients dramatically improve their outlook on work and life, while improving their leadership skills and unlocking their potential.
