What is Coaching?
This is question I hear a lot, and I have many ways of answering.
It’s never about the problem
II thought I’d take the opportunity to provide one answer in a very new way for me. So I made this explainer video for this post. It took me out of my regular comfort zone. I’ll be honest, I’m not going to get used to hearing myself recorded, and I’m rarely comfortable showing my distinctly sub-standard artistic skills. But hey, I’ve always appreciated a scrappy message well communicated over an elegant message that takes days or weeks to craft.
It’s always about the person
And that in itself is another answer to the same question. Coaching at it’s heart is about supporting people who are comitted to their own growth.
