About CoachingAsk a person to describe what happiness means to them and you will never get the same answer twice. Such is the same for coaching. Coaching is a very unique and tailored experience that only the client can experience for themselves. Yes, coaching at a high level is about accelerating positive change and reaching set goals, assessing what’s working and what could be improved, but the fun part…the part that you can’t explain or describe because it is so unique is the process that happens in between. It’s a progression of self-awareness, reflection, action, accountability and results.
Coaches are facilitators and collaborators. We don’t give advice, train or tutor on life and work, nor do we provide therapy. Suggestions can always be made if requested, but that’s not the core of what we do. Coaching focuses on effective solutions to accelerate positive change, helping you become the best version of yourself.
“The world we have created is a product of our thinking; it cannot be changed without changing
our thinking.” - Albert Einstein
Most people who want coaching are keen to see some sort of change, attain results, have a better quality of life, be more fulfilled, have better balance, or just simply a better process for accomplishing their goals and desires. Individual goals can be categorized into different groups such as relationships, career, health, well-being, finances, personal development, fun/self-expression, and physical environment. Executive coaching includes goals around performance, productivity, self- management, effective communication, delegation, managing others, emotional intelligence, and managing change.

“Coaching is about performing at your best through the individual and private assistance of someone who will challenge, stimulate and guide you to keep growing.” - Gerard O'Donovan
This is done by improving the quality of your thinking. Powerful questions are asked to make you pause and reflect upon your thinking in new ways that elicit different patterns. Perhaps it is a new way of seeing the same thing that had previously been blocking you or sending you around in circles. These powerful questions help you think for yourself, become more self-aware and find your own answers. In summary, the process of coaching can help you reach your full potential.
