WHAT IS COACHING?
Most have heard the word coach and coaching earlier. But what does it really mean? You may have tried coaching before or heard about others who went to a coach. Whether you want a career coach or life coach, it’s important that the coach you choose to hire has the right education. One of the largest certifications available today is issued by the International Coach Federation (ICF) and is an organization that ensures that the coaching offered by the coach holds a certain quality. Since the title coach is not a protected title, anyone can basically call a coach today, whether in practice they can actually coaching or not. But what is coaching and what does it mean in practice
Coaching is a very powerful way of developing people’s skills, abilities and increasing performance. Coaching can also help handle problems and challenges before they get too big. In order to explain easily, one can say that coaching is a process aimed at increasing performance and focusing on “here and now” rather than the past or too far into the future. Although there are many different models of coaching, everyone is more or less agreed that as a coach, one is more a facilitator for learning than an expert.
HOW DOES COACHING WORK?
There is a huge difference between learning something and helping someone learn about themselves. Coaching is about the coach helping the individual to improve their own performance by helping them improve their own learning process. A good coach believes that the individual has the answers and solutions within themselves but also understands that they may need help finding them. To become a good coach, the coach needs knowledge and understanding of how the process works, but also master the various skills and techniques needed to help the individual forward.
A coaching conversation usually means that the coach and client are talking (either by phone, video call or physical session), focusing on helping the client find their own answers. After all, people are much more likely to pursue solutions that they themselves have achieved, rather than those they are forced to do. Still today, coaching is used as a support when something went wrong, but for many, it has become increasingly useful to help them explore their own goals and aspirations to achieve them.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
COACH, LIFE COACH & CAREER COACH
Today there are various coaches that call different things like life coach, sales coach, executive coach, career coach or job coach. But in coaching there is not really something called life coach or career coach. The coach should not be an expert in the way we usually think about whether we would hire an adviser or mentor in an area for example. So it does not matter what kind of coach you are going to as long as it goes with coaching as a method and process. Then, of course, some coaches can bring specific tools that are better suited for life coaching or career coaching than other areas.
