The Heart of a Coach

The word “Coaching” has become an industry buzzword, but greatly misunderstood or misused by many. A great coach believes that everyone is uniquely creative with distinct gifts and potential. It’s not about providing solutions through consultancy to the client.  A coach with a heart is able to see the greatness in each of us, and bring out the talent of the individual.  More importantly, if you are able to “Believe” in yourself, you are on the way to great success.

 “Belief lifts your talent.  Your talent will not be lifted to the highest level unless you also have belief” – John C. Maxwell




The International Coach Federation (ICF) defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The client or learner is sometimes called a “coachee”.  Coaching differs from mentoring in that it focus on competence specifics, rather than general overall development. Mentoring involves the sharing of wisdom based on the mentor’s past experiences.  Professional coaches uses a range of communication skills (such as targeted restatements, listening, questioning, clarifying etc.) to help clients shift their perspectives and thereby discover different approaches to achieve their goals.

One of the most valuable outcomes from coaching people is that you also develop yourself in the process of coaching.  As we coach more people, we acquire more knowledge and skills, helping to transform our professional and personal lives.  Learning how to coach has become an important and essential leadership skill.  Many companies are hiring professional coaches to help their top leaders achieve greater performance and business results.  There are also various types of coaches in the industry ranging from Life, Professional, Wellness, Sports Coach etc.
