What Is Coaching?
Coaching is a one-on-one, personal communication between two individuals, in which one is the coachee, and the other one who is more knowledgeable and has a wider experience is the coach. Through it, a coachee gets the advice and guidance of the coach on how to develop one’s self and become competitive enough in the area they chose. It is more of helping you discover your capabilities and skills and using them to achieve your goals based on your preferences and values.
Coaching is categorized according to the areas which it is applied into, such as Business Coaching which focuses on giving positive support and guidance in order to improve an individual or a group’s efficiency in the field. Another one is financial which focuses on helping a client attain financial goals and have a positive money mindset. Other more categories are life which uses the application of disciplines such as psychology and sociology; career which works on work and career issues; personal, which is more on the interests of the client as well as their goals and objectives in themselves, and a lot more.
