The coachee is put in the driver’s seat as the expert in themselves, their values, needs, and aspirations. The role of the coach is to enable and support coachees in their self-discovery through a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires and helps them achieve desired outcomes.
Impactful coaching conversations happen when coachees are able to explore and define meaningful goals and outcomes, imagine the experience they are striving for, consider the unique options and opportunities and decide what they want to do and how they want to do it. The coach's role is to help facilitate and catalyze the process and then to help them stay accountable to their long-term sustainable professional growth and development.
Coaching is a partnership aimed at achieving goals, increasing impact, and transformational learning.
Coaching is not therapy, consulting, or mentoring although there are similarities and overlaps.
As a coach, my role is not to tell a coachee what to do or to diagnose them. My role is to facilitate and guide through the use of well-timed, Socratic questions and where appropriate to the conversation, L&D-based frameworks, tools, theories, and best practices.
