What is coaching?

The International Coaching Federation describes coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential”.

A coach’s role is to provide structure, tools and accountability so that a you can accelerate progress toward achieving goals. Coaching focuses on issues and objectives you identify as being important to you, and it can benefit you in any area of life. For example, personal life coaching may be directed towards improving family or other social relationships, whereas executive coaching focuses on your goals within your business organization.

A coach provides insights and tools to address your needs and highlight new possibilities. Most such tools employ a questioning process that is designed to improve your own problem solving skills, to assist you in developing relevant, effective plans to move forward in your life, and to increase your self-awareness.

While a coach is responsible to facilitate the process, your are responsible to take action. Your level of success, and the speed and extent to which you achieve your goals is entirely within your own control.

What are mentoring and consulting?

While both mentoring and consulting also focus on assisting you with issues and objectives you have identified as requiring attention, they are distinct from coaching.

Mentoring differs from coaching in that it involves the active transfer of knowledge to you. A mentor will suggest solutions and answers to you rather than guiding you to develop your own. As with coaching, the responsibility to take action rests with you.

Consulting also involves the active transfer of knowledge but the main difference between it and either coaching or mentoring is that the consultant is primarily responsible to take action. A consultant may create business plans, conduct research or complete other projects you have delegated to them.

Coaching, mentoring and consulting are not the same as psychological therapy or business analysis and should not be confused with or used in place of those services.
