What is Coaching?

Coaching is a relationship between the coach and the person being coached, sometimes called a PBC. Coaches exist to help others experience change in their personal and professional lives for better.   According to the International Coaching Federation (ICF) coaching is "an interactive process that helps individuals and organizations improve their performances and achieve extraordinary results." 

Professionally-trained, coaches have expertise in coaching individuals to identify important priorities in life. The coach will also help the PBC strategize their plans to reach their goals. And finally, the coach will work to help the PBC overcome any roadblocks that happen to pop up along the way.
