What Is Coaching?
The International Coaching Federation (ICF) definition of Coaching is “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.” It is not therapy. It is also not mentoring or consulting, although there may sometimes be elements of mentoring or consulting upon mutual agreement between the coach and client. It's as if the coach is placing a "mirror" in front of you, bringing the reality of the situation into full awareness.
Coaching can be helpful for anyone at any time. However, there are certain milestones or transitions in an organization where coaching can be particularly helpful. During these times, leaders are often wrestling with trade-off decisions that affect both their professional and personal lives. These trade-off decisions may occur at any stage. How you deal with them at each stage, will determine the outcome; that's where partnering with a coach can benefit you and your organization.
