What is leadership coaching? 

Leadership coaching is a collaborative process through coaching to be more effective as a leader through the use of psychology, experience, motivation, and leadership skills. The coach helps identify goals and generate an accountability action to achieve these goals. My unique skill is to ask powerful questions that will help discover the underlying issues the client may be facing. My goal as a coach is to bring out the full potential of a client I work with.

What do I love about it?

I use psychology in my coaching due to my background and like to focus on personality development and address any challenges that may be a hindrance to being an effective leader. I get excited about finding answers to some questions they have had their whole lives. My coaching begins with a psychometric assessment called EQ2.0 that will help build a foundation for the coaching.

How is coaching distinct from other service professions?

Professional coaching focuses on setting goals, creating outcomes, and managing personal change. Sometimes it’s helpful to understand coaching by distinguishing it from other personal or organizational support professions.

• Therapy: Therapy deals with healing pain, dysfunction, and conflict within an individual or in relationships. The focus is often on resolving difficulties arising from the past that hamper an individual’s emotional functioning in the present, improving overall psychological functioning, and dealing with the present in more emotionally healthy ways. Coaching, on the other hand, supports personal and professional growth based on self-initiated change in pursuit of specific actionable outcomes. Coaching is future-focused, and the coaching relationship emphasizes action, accountability, and follow-through.

• Consulting: Individuals or organizations retain consultants for their expertise. While consulting approaches vary widely, the assumption is the consultant will diagnose problems and prescribe and, sometimes, implement solutions. With coaching, the assumption is that individuals or teams are capable of generating their own solutions, with the coach supplying supportive, discovery-based approaches and frameworks.

• Mentoring: A mentor is an expert who provides wisdom and guidance based on his or her own experience. Mentoring may include advising, counseling, and coaching. The coaching process does not include advising or counseling, and focuses instead on individuals or
groups setting and reaching their own objectives.

• Training: Training programs are based on objectives set out by the trainer or instructor. Though objectives are clarified in the coaching process, they are set by the individual or team being coached, with guidance provided by the coach. Training also assumes a linear learning path that coincides with an established curriculum. Coaching is less linear, without a set curriculum.

• Athletic Development: Though sports metaphors are often used, professional coaching is different from sports coaching. The athletic coach is often seen as an expert who guides and directs the behavior of individuals or teams based on his or her greater experience and knowledge.

Professional coaches possess these qualities, but their experience and knowledge of the individual or team determine the direction. Additionally, professional coaching does not focus on behaviors that are being executed poorly or incorrectly. Instead, the focus is on identifying opportunities for development based on individual strengths and capabilities
