The ICF Definition of Coaching (International Coaching Federation)

“Professional coaching is an ongoing professional relationship that helps people produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses or organizations.  Through the process of coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life.”

“In each meeting, the client chooses the focus of conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations and questions. This interaction creates clarity and moves the client into action. Coaching accelerates the client’s progress by providing greater forces and awareness of choice. Coaching concentrates on where clients are now and what they are willing to do to get where they want to be in the future. ICF member coaches and ICF-credentialed coaches recognize that the results are a matter of the client’s intentions, choices, and actions, supported by the coach’s efforts and application of the coaching process.” (L. Whitworth, K & H Kimsey-House and P. Sandahl the Co-active Coaching New Skills for Coaching People Toward Success in work and life.)
