What is coaching?

ICF defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.

Coaching is a process and partnership which allows you to accelerate forward, especially when you’ve been stuck. By realigning your momentum, your life becomes easier, more peaceful and fulfilling. A coach won’t tell you what to do or give you all the answers. A coach is objective, non-judgmental, an excellent listener, and helps you to uncover the strategies and steps forward that work best for you. As a client, you are responsible for the commitment to achieve the agreed upon action steps and for your own success.

How will coaching benefit you as a leader?

Working with a coach allows you and/or your employees to:

•             Achieve goals you’ve never thought possible – personally and professionally

•             Gain new insights and expand possibilities

•             Become more balanced in their lives

•             Become focused on what’s most important and fulfilling

•             Optimize inner trust, intuition and self-worth

•             Achieve more with an accountability partner

ICFP and WOMEN’S WAY are thrilled to launch this initiative, offering an exclusive opportunity to experience coaching 1 on 1!
