What is Coaching

People ask me this question all the time. And, as someone who is in the business of educating and informing, I’m always happy to answer them.

The common thread (uniting all types of coaching & mentoring) is that these services offer a vehicle for analysis, reflection and action that ultimately enable the client to achieve success in one more areas of their life or work.

Here are some published definitions I particularly like…

Coaching is…
“a process that enables learning and development to occur and thus performance to improve. To be a successful a Coach requires a knowledge and understanding of process as well as the variety of styles, skills and techniques that are appropriate to the context in which the coaching takes place” Eric Parsloe, The Manager as Coach and Mentor.

Mentoring is…
“off-line help by one person to another in making significant transitions in knowledge, work or thinking” Clutterbuck, D & Megginson, D, Mentoring Executives and Directors.

Made You Think is a coaching practice dedicated to uncovering and overcoming fear as a process that enables both individual and corporate clients to achieve their full potential.
