WHAT IS COACHING?
Coaching is a collaborative and phenomenological process, which enables the client / coachee to meet the essence of who they truly are and walk their path. The ICF defines coaching as ‘partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of awareness, imagination, sensitivity, productivity and leadership. As ICF coaches, we agree to practise the ICF Core Competencies and we pledge accountability to the ICF Code of Ethics.
HOW DOES COACHING WORK IN PRACTICE?
Every coaching process will start by clarifying the client’s expectations. The client will be invited to bring a question or topic to the session, which the coach will be able to use as a focus to help them awaken to new insights or possible actions, which will bring them closer to their goal or desire. That said, each coaching process is unique because it is tailored to the client’s individual needs, learning style and capacity. The difference between coaching and mentoring / consultancy / therapy is that the client is viewed as the ‘expert of their own life’ and therefore, the coach does not attempt to diagnose or guide the client in what to do. Coaching is a dynamic and creative process, in which the client plays an active role in their evolution. Lilith invites you to a process of 6 sessions x 1h every 1-4 weeks.
