How is personal coaching and executive coaching different from
consulting, therapy, mentoring, sports coaching, or a best friend?
How does coaching work?
How does coaching work compared to Consulting?
Personal coaching or executive coaching works much like consulting.
However, the coach stays with the client beyond the consultation
phase, to help implement the new skills, changes and goals, to make
sure that they really happen.
How does coaching work compared to Therapy?
Therapy works on the "what," analyzing the situation and
working through it. Therapy seeks to advise and counsel and looks
at past issues. Executive coaching or personal coaching focuses
on the "who" and the "how". Who do I
want to become, and how will I achieve my goals.
How does coaching work compared to Sports Coaching?
Executive coaching includes several principles from sports coaching,
like teamwork, going for the goal, providing useful tools, and being
your best. Unlike sports coaching, most executive, professional,
or personal coaching is not competition or win/lose based. A personal
coach focuses on strengthening their clients' skills, versus helping
them beat the other team.
What happens when you hire me as a coach?
You become more aware of what is really important to you. You take
effective and focused actions immediately. You stop putting up with
what is dragging you down. You create momentum, so it's easier to
get results. You receive direct accountability for your intentions
and get support for all your improvements. You maintain a healthy
balance between your personal and professional life.
