The Emerging Role Of Coaching In Society
by Dr. Karen Wolfe

"Coaching is a way of working with people that leaves them more competent and more fulfilled so that they are more able to contribute to their organization and find meaning in what they are doing."
-- Coaching Evoking Excellence in Others by James Flaherty

Why Coaching is Needed in the World of Business Today
  1. The need for innovation and a corporate culture that is ready to reinvent itself constantly.
  2. Organizations must be dedicated to allowing people to be both effective and fulfilled.
  3. The traditional relationship between an organization and the employee, known as the command-and-control structure, is not working.
  4. Organizations have to find new ways to retain people as long as possible that involves compensation as well as opportunities for continuous learning.
  5. Organizations are the ongoing creations of the people who work in them.
The 3 Products of Coaching
As a coach it is my aim to work with people to achieve the following 3 goals.
  1. Longterm Excellent Performance
    The client meets the high objective standards of the discipline in which coaching is occurring.
  2. Self Correction
    Well-coached clients can observe when they are performing well and when they are not, and make the necessary adjustments.
  3. Self Generation
    Well-coached clients know they can always improve and will continually find ways on their own to do so.
By keeping these three goals in mind, I avoid any temptation to become indispensable to the client, and, instead, I work to build the competence of the client.

What is Coaching?
A coach helps people CLARIFY their objectives and CHALLENGES and SUPPORTS people to DISCOVER more effective approaches for ACHIEVING those objectives.

This can cover every area of our life such as business, health, personal growth, relationships and career
