The International Coach Federation (ICF) defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
For many, coaching is a life-changing experience that dramatically improves their outlook on work and life while improving leadership skills. Coaching helps people tap into their potential, unlocking sources of creativity and productivity.
If you love helping people in their personal and work context by working through things that has kept them stuck, kept them small and kept them from living their fullest potential, coaching will give you the opportunity to make a change.
Learning and practicing Core Coaching skills/ Coaching Competencies will help you to raise your self-awareness by articulating your thoughts and reflecting upon them. Becoming a coach will help you to increase your leadership presence as a person or as a professional by powerfully relating to others and bringing forth collective effectiveness and sustainable results.
