What is coaching?
In coaching, clients enjoy the benefits of consistent support and regular accountability while working with an inquisitive partner who invites the client to set customized goals and to then generate organic approaches to meeting those goals. It’s all about what works best for the given client and organization. It’s an effective blend that allows the client to tailor the coaching relationship to the organization’s unique situation.
