So what is a coach ?

23 12 2008

At the end of each year,  I look back. Again this year, I found myself explaining, often, what a coach is. Here is one way of looking at it.

A Coach Is . . .

· Your own personal trainer, enabling you to achieve your goals

· Your champion during a turnaround.

· Your trainer of communication and life skills.

· Your sounding board when making choices.

· Your motivation when strong actions are called for.

· Your unconditional support when you take a hit.

· Your mentor of personal development.

· Your co-designer when creating an extraordinary project.

· Your beacon during stormy times.

· Your wake up call if you don’t hear your own.

· And most importantly, the professional coach is your partner in helping you have all of what matters most to you.
