Coaching is a developmental approach that allows an individual or group of people to reflect and gain awareness of who they are, what is important to them, identify goals, strengths and areas for development and solutions for moving forwards. People engage in coaching for a variety of reasons; coaching can make improvements in one’s life, business, career, performance, and enhance relationships with others or develop specific skills. Coaching is a partnership between a coach and client. Traditionally, coaching was associated with sports. However, in recent years, coaching has become applicable in every area. Of the numerous types of coaching available, some of them are, business, career, confidence, employee, life coaching, management coaching, parent, performance, personal, spiritual, success, interview, and leadership. Different approaches to coaching exist, but two common ones are Non-Directive Coaching and Directive Coaching. Non-Directive Coaching is where the coach asks questions to allow the client to find their own solutions but will not offer the client advice or suggestions. Rather, the coach uses skillful questioning to help the client see their situation from a different perspective, discover options, hold their client accountable to their actions. The main benefit of this approach is that it empowers the client to make changes by taking full ownership of their own solutions rather than do what they’ve been instructed to do.’ In Directive Coaching, the coach offers the client options, solutions, tools and techniques for moving forward. The five principles of coaching are: everything is alright with people/there are no wrong people; every man has the power to achieve their goal; all actions are carried out with positive intentions; people change all the time and this process is inevitable; a person seeks to choose the best option from the opportunities available.
