Coaching is a personalised support system which is different from therapy, consultancy or mentoring. It is applicable to individuals (Life Coaching) as well as business teams and managers (Corporate Coaching) or students (School Coaching). A coach facilitates by introspective methods so that a client can discover his or her own answers based on personal values, preferences and unique perspectives. Responsibility and autonomy are key to the process. The coach will not:
- cure the client like a therapist
- advise like a consultant
- take the client under his/her wing like a mentor.
