“A coach must be able to provide a good working definition of coaching and articulate the difference between coaching and psychotherapy”. – Bruce Peltier
Coaching is a critical self-directing intervention that unlocks, empowers and enhances an individual’s potential, wellbeing, growth, performance and personal learning.
Coaching is the practice of helping people make decisions, commit to actions, and produce results.
Coaching helps people move from where they are now, to where they want to be… and to do this more quickly and effectively than if they acted alone.
