What is coaching?
Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The coach identifies a client’s goal for this partnership and helps the client move toward it. An ICF certified coach uses active listening, powerful questions, assessments, and other skills that have been verified by the ICF. A coach is not a mentor, adviser, or therapist.
How can I find the right coach for me?
Look for a coach who is certified by the International Coaching Federation (ICF). This is the industry self-governing body which sets and maintains the ethical and professional standards for coaching. Coaching is not currently a regulated profession, so anyone may call themselves a coach, but having the ICF credential verifies that your coach has been trained by an accredited institution, abides by the ICF Code of Ethics and standards, and has a significant number of professional coaching hours logged.
While coaching can be done in person, your coach does not need to be local to be effective. In fact, most coaching is done by telephone or live Web platforms.
Ultimately, you will want to choose someone who has verified skills and makes you feel comfortable.
