Coaching is a learning experience between a coach and a client that builds on the client's desire to do something different in the future. Coaching is the process of exploring the possibilities available for change and growth.
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 has been around for a long time, as early as Plato's challenging assumption and exploring ideas. Life coaching, today has emerged and is gaining popularity in the business world and in the daily lives of individuals. When coaches engage in purposeful conversations, they help their clients cut through the noise and reach the core of the issues they are facing.
