What is personal coaching?
The International Coaching Federation defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
Coaching is not mentoring, coaching or training
Mentors provide advice, solutions and tell what they think the client should do. Counsellors focus on past issues and end in the present. A trainer tells, demonstrates and is directive in their actions. Coaching does not provide advice or spend a lot of time looking at the past. It also does not rely on a one-way passage of communication from the coach to the client (Robertson, 2012).
What coaching is….
Coaching starts in the present, using listening and powerful questions to understand the client situation, where they want to go and how they want to get there. Coaching focuses on unlocking the employees’ inner wisdom so that they can solve their own problems with confidence (Robertson, 2012).
What is a DISC Profile?
DISC is a personal assessment tool used by many coaches and trainers throughout the world. Based on the work of William Moulton Marston, since the 1950s millions of people have completed DISC assessments to gain a better understanding of the behavioural preferences across the four identified types: Dominant (D), Influencing (I), Steady (S) and Cautious (C). The DISC Profile can be referenced in coaching to increase self-awareness and emotional intelligence within individuals and may also be used with teams as a component of team building, improving communication and feedback.
Why would I want personal coaching?
