The International Coaching Federation defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Coaching honors the client as the expert in his/her life and work and believes that every client is creative, resourceful, and whole.
Standing on this foundation, the coach's responsibility is to:
→ Discover, clarify, and align with what the client wants to achieve;
→ Encourage client self-discovery;
→ Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies; and
→ Hold the client responsible and accountable.
