I usually explain it in my own way and share my vision:
Coaching is all about being positive, looking at the future and staying focus only on what you can control.
However on that same day, I came across the Simon Sinek’s golden circle:
And somehow it made me reframe my vision of coaching, and now I would also say that:
Often people come to coaching with a WHAT question, and they think that a coach will help them with the HOW… But it’s rather about the WHY that they will talk together and get fruitful answers.
Do you have your own experience and definition of coaching? I would love to hear more about it!
