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.)

Many people ask if coaching is different from therapy. Yes!
Coaching is not only about the here and now but also about the future. Although a coach cannot help a client fix the past and should not try to, all good coaches can help move a client forward in their life. For the client, it is about what you want to create in your life.

Coaching Expectations: Lisa designs a strong alliance right away with clients during an initial Discovery Session. Both the client and the coach are intimately involved in designing the coaching relationship that will be most beneficial to the client. Lisa always starts clients with an exercise to assess their level of satisfaction, both personally and professionally in eight aspects of their lives. She then works to help clients define specific personal and professional goals that they want to meet and ensure those goals are aligned with the clients’ needs and values. Coaching is a two-way street and requires active participation. It is a relationship that requires each party to be prepared and put forth their best efforts to make it work and be successful. Although the sessions themselves are important, a great deal of the transformation takes place between the sessions – when clients complete various inquiries and assignments that will take them to their next steps.
