- Coaching draws out rather than puts in.
- It develops rather than imposes.
- It reflects rather than directs.
- It delivers results!
Through active listening & powerful questioning the coach is able to draw out solutions that the coachee may not have considered before. The coachee finds the answers themselves without having information ‘force-fed’.
Coaching is reactive, flexible and enabling rather than prescriptive or instructional. It’s non-judgemental, not judgemental. Coaching creates congruency between goals and personal values thus it removes conflicts ensuring a more balanced lifestyle.
Coaches are upbeat and positive and those that have experienced working with a coach can tell you they leave their sessions motivated and inspired. Coaches keep their coachees moving forward, they keep the momentum going and it all comes down to physics … (the one bit I do remember from school)… It’s easier to move when you are already moving! This always makes me think of my first 2nd hand car that regularly stopped running. When I had to push start it, it took all my effort, but once I got the wheels turning it was quick to get it going again.
