Professional Coaching is a partnership between coach and coachee where the individual or team is inspired to maximize their personal and professional potential through a structured, creative and reflective process.
Professional Coaching allows individuals to explore different areas of action, from new perspectives on a context, to discover and adopt their own solutions and action plans, to achieve the goals they have defined.
In professional coaching we help individuals or teams to find their own solutions. Unlike other solutions such as consulting, training and psychotherapy, coaching is solely aimed at the present and future and the Coachee's goals, clarifying the vision and helping him to understand his own power.
What Professional Coaching Is Not
It is important to distinguish that coaching is not:
- mentoring – a coach does not give advice, but rather focuses on how the coachee can set and achieve their own goals;
- therapy – therapy deals with internal dysfunctions and its focus is on the past history, unlike coaching.
- consulting – there is a prescription of solutions, while in coaching one is guided towards the path of discovering the solution;
- individual training – it is not the role of the coach to define the objectives, but of the coachee who defines his own path.
The Coach's role is to help you walk the path, to see further and new possibilities, and to develop the necessary skills to achieve your goals. The coachee will thus be much more committed and motivated with the solutions he has defined and chosen as the best, putting himself in an excellent position to reach his potential and fulfill his desires.
