What is Coaching

Professional life coaches develop personalized coaching models that are rooted in the personal experience of the coach and the coachee, and in theory.

Humanistic coaches utilize positive psychology and set aside their value systems and ego-driven opinions, in support of instilling greater self-awareness and transformation in the coachee.

Coaches move the coachee from a position of stasis toward a position of conscious choice.  

Coaching from a humanistic perspective is focused on facilitating positive change and moving forward in life or work on small or grand scales, in contrast to the remedial focus of the therapeutic counselling models.

The coach maintains a selfless focus on the needs, wants, goals, and vision of the coachee. Coaches become process experts, instead of content experts.

Coaches act in ways that free clients to find their own direction and solve their own problems.

My three-stage coaching model includes contracting, mutual inquiry, and a call-to-action.

In the contracting stage the foundation for a trusting relationship is developed.

The inquiring stage is founded on unconditional positive regard, deep listening, reflective feedback, and appreciative inquiry.

In the call-to-action stage the coach seeks a commitment from the coachee to move forward toward a resolution of dilemmas that they might be encountering in the workplace.
