May be some sport coaches as Red Auerbach or Chuck Daly come to you mind. May be you think on great motivational speakers as Tony Robbins, Napoleon hill or Deepak Chopra.
You are right. They are great coaches.
But still you are finding coaching everywhere. Today is very easy to find someone who call himself or herself coach. This person will promise you to help you to makes your dream come true. Or, at least, something very similar.
The offer you can find in the market is huge.
Try to search the word coaching in Google and you will get something around 119,000,000 results.
It looks like a whole ocean of coaching waters to swim in.
If you want to get a reference you could look for some associations. The International Coach Federation could be a good reference. They will show you this coaching definition:
"Professional coaching is an interactive process that helps individuals and organizations improve their performances and achieve extraordinary results. Professional coaches work with clients in all areas including business, career, finances, health and relationships. As a result of professional coaching, clients set better goals, take more action, make better decisions, and more fully use their natural strengths." This is a wide definition.
Let me point out some keys.
Coaching is an interactive process. You will need to be active and your coach will be active as well. Are you really willing to move forward?
It will help you to improve your performance. So mean a change. A coaching process is not to just talk.
Can be used in all areas, which does not mean the same coach can be useful for all areas. Be focus in your coaching process.
As a result of coaching, clients set better goals, take more action, make better decisions, and more fully use their natural strengths.
You are the one how set better goals, take more action, make better decisions, and more fully use your natural strengths, not your coach.
