What some call “coaching” is often more accurately described as training or consulting.
We make a critical distinction.
Coaching, as we define it, is a process of self-learning – supporting individuals to explore and discover what propels them, what holds them back, what they really want, and where they truly excel.
In our coaching, we assist people to clarify goals, discover blind spots, and evaluate the impact of their habits.
Our interactive training, on the other hand, teaches people skills that they don’t yet have and gives them immediate opportunities to practice those skills. While different, training works hand-in-hand with coaching in that coaching often reveals challenges that require new knowledge and skills.
