Characteristics of Coaching:

  • Collaborative – client and coach working together

  • Goal-oriented – What do you want by the end of the session?

  • Not Therapy – clinical / healing the past / focusing on fixing problems
  • Not Consulting – evaluating / advising / consultant is empowered
  • Not Mentoring – Guiding / providing a role model / giving advice
