If you have read my previous blog post “What is Life Coaching” or checked out my Questions section, you will have read about this topic already. But this time, I want to share explanations from other Coaches with you. This might help you to understand it even more. So here we go:
“At the heart of coaching is the idea that it is a form of personal intervention that is future focused, goal orientated, and concerned with enabling others to move forward with their lives or businesses more effectively than if they were doing this alone.” Coaching Academy
“Standard Coaching offers useful one-to-one guidance, encouragement, and support to help teach you the strategies to achieve specific goals.”Arielle Essex in her book Compassionate Coaching
“Coaching is about change, about making changes. A Coach is a magician of change who takes the cards you have and help you to play your hand better, or sometimes to change the rules of the game, or find a better game.” … “Coaching engages your imagination and at the same time is immensely practical in the real world. It deals with goals and achievements. It links the world of dreaming with the world of reality.” Joseph O’Conner & Andrea Lages in their book Coaching with NLP.
“Coaching is a conversation, or series of conversations, that one person has with another. … A coaching conversation might last two minutes or two hours since, ultimately, coaching is defined by its impact.” Julie Starr in brilliant Coaching
“Life Coaching is about gap analysis that closes the gap between life and dreams.” Curly Martin
“Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential.” International Coach Federation
LEt me know if that was helpful to you.
