What is a coach?
A coach is different from a consultant in that a coach doesn’t necessarily enter a conversation with you as the “expert” in your life. YOU are the expert about you, YOU are the expert about your business. A coach will help you find and draw from within you, the inner brilliance that resides in all of us.
A coach is different from a counselor in that a coach doesn’t delve into the many “layers” that comprise the human experience. A coach focuses on the specific outcomes you desire and the primary focus is on the present and future, not on the past.
Coaching is a conversational journey that is directed by you. A coach will help you get to wherever you want to go. In some cases, a coach will interject information and insight that serves the conversation. In other cases, a coach brings into the conversation, some very specific skills and knowledge that are important in helping you reach your chosen objectives.
A coach can also be a mentor or an accountability partner to ensure you are moving forward and doing the things you say you will do.
