WHAT PROFESSIONAL COACHING IS - AND IS NOT
WHAT PROFESSIONAL COACHING IS
Understand what Professional Coaching is and how Coaching can help you achieve desired goals
"... We all have talents and aspirations. Sometimes we just need to reconnect to our deep interests, rediscover our passions, reconfirm our core values, all this to lead a life that is meaningful and in line with the best version of ourselves. We often find ourselves running in hamster wheels juggling in-between work, family and other demanding commitments. At other times, we find ourselves feeling stuck in unpleasant, demotivating or stressful situations without realising the extraordinary fact that we actually have the power to change this unwanted context.
The starting point to achieving any type of change in our lives is self-awareness: becoming aware of yourself and of your intrinsic needs, aspirations, feelings, thoughts, core values, (limiting) self-beliefs, strengths, weaknesses, energy-drivers and energy-drainers. Taking the time to simply pause and reflect upon all these points, is the starting point to realising your best self. And this is where coaching can help. Coaching provides that intimate space for you to truly reflect upon yourself and on what you really want out of life. And the journey is fascinating." - Liza Rosén (About Me)
ICF DEFINITION OF COACHING
The International Coaching Federation (ICF) – known as the coaching industry’s main governing body and leading accreditation & credentialing organisation, setting coaching standards, core competencies, and a code of ethics for coaches and coaching schools alike – defines professional coaching as:
“Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential”.
Professional Coaching can be seen as a partnership, a collaboration, between a coach and a coaching client, where the coach uses a series of skillful techniques – like powerful questioning, active (actual) listening, and a variety of coaching tools, exercises and models – to help the coaching client identify and achieve meaningful personal and professional goals.
Put simply, a coach is someone who helps clients reflect upon themselves to identify desired goals, investigate options, create clear and accountable action plans, and finally reach purposeful personal and/or professional growth.
Coaching provides this invaluable space for personal development:
By becoming more aware of their internal world, clients discover their driving motivations, their true aspirations and self-limiting factors which empower them to move forward and make purposeful changes in their lives. The starting point to making any significant change is...self-awareness. This increased self-awareness can lead to improved self-confidence, higher performance, better relationships, larger sense of life fulfillment and ultimately can generate profound self-transformation for the client.
CLIENT IS RESOURCEFUL
A Coach will not advise or tell their clients what to do – instead coaching relies on the clients’ own resources and pre-supposes the client is expert of their own life and has all the answers within. A Coach empowers clients to feel accountable for reaching their own growth, achieving their own goals and discovering their own answers. Coaching is mainly concerned with achievements in the present and future and has a more forward-looking goal-oriented approach compared to other professions providing self-development support to individuals.
WHAT PROFESSIONAL COACHING IS NOT
Understand how Coaching differs from other professions providing self-development support to individuals, like Counseling, Mentoring, Training and Consulting.
COUNSELING / THERAPY
Counselors are experts in diagnosing, dealing with and healing dysfunctionalities and mental health issues
A client will generally seek counseling to get away from pain or discomfort or deal with trauma
Counseling is more likely to involve understanding and working with past experiences
In contract, coaching deals more with the client’s mental growth and focuses more on present and future achievements and moving towards desired goals
A Mentor is a sponsor, a wiser/older role model, with greater experience/expertise in a specific domain, who supports, guides and advises younger or less experienced individuals in helping them develop in their field
In contrast, Coaching is designed to help individuals find their own path and discover their own strengths, skills and blind spots
A Trainer is a knowledge and skills’ transfer specialist or facilitator
Training implies a knowledge transfer by an expert in the field and corresponds to the process of teaching the knowledge, skills or abilities needed for a particular job or activity
In contrast, in Coaching the client is the expert and has the answers (not the coach) and a coach will help clients to learn for and from themselves rather than teaching them
A Consultant provides expert advise in a specific professional domain and helps clients by defining their problems, then formulating solutions to overcome these problems, and can go as far as implementing the recommended solutions
In contrast, a Coach views the client as expert of their own life and doesn’t advice nor recommend or implement a set agenda on the client’s behalf

Instead, we will partner on the coaching journey together, and bringing various coaching techniques to our conversations - like powerful questioning, active (actual) listening, and a number of coaching tools, exercises and models – I will help you identify, clarify and achieve your meaningful desired goals. I make sure you leave each session with clear accountable actions & homework for the next session.

YOUR COACHING TOPICS
You define your topics. They can be related to Professional and/or Personal objectives. And if you are unsure what it is you really want to achieve, then I will also help you identify what this is. We will work around formulating well-formed goals - meaning goals that are desirable, rewarding and achievable for you. We will brainstorm around options. We will check-in on your available resources. And we will make sure you leave each session with an accountable action plan of next steps to implement for the next session.
