The ICF Definition of Coaching
The International Coach Federation defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
What to expect?
Coaching may include assessments, and utilizes an appreciative approach (strengths based), based on the belief that every client is creative, resourceful, and whole.
Results of Coaching
According to the 2009 ICF Global Coaching Client Study, companies that use or have used professional coaching for business reasons have seen a median return on investment of seven times their initial investment. Through the process of coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their (individual or team) performance, and enhance their quality of life. Coaching is designed to accelerate the client’s progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice.
