What is Coaching?
Coaching–both business and life–is an ever increasing field globally. Initially a spin-off from corporate consulting, certified coaches are able to help others in all areas of life. Most successful entrepreneurs will hire coaches to bring their business or idea to the next level. Others will hire coaches to aid in transitions such as relationship changes, fitness objectives, and organizational projects. Each and every certified coach receives different training, as s/he brings to the table his/her own life experiences. Life coaches are not therapists, even though it is useful at times to explore past failures and peak experiences alike. Sometimes I read a new book and plan to change some habit, for example, but I need an accountability partner, check-off sheet, or coach to really help me accomplish my goals. Coaching can be specific or broad.
