What Is Coaching? +
Coaching is an alliance between the Coach and his client in a process that encourages reflection and creativity in order to explore issues that matter and need to be resolved, or to unleash personal and professional potential in view of achieving sustainable objectives.
More concretely, coaching offers a space for the client to ask questions, test ideas, define solutions, strategies and actions that serve him and allow him to develop professionally and personally, in line with his needs, aspirations, values and identity. It also enables to change thought patterns, beliefs and/or work on limiting behaviors that do not or no longer his interests.
Beyond active listening and the use of striking questions representing the basis of any coaching conversation, various tools and methodologies can be proposed to the client in order to facilitate self-discovery and self-learning as well as development.
