Yesterday we had a lesson about Coaching. The first I hear this word, I can image the football coach, basketball coach. etc. But after the explanation. I understood "coaching" is not to same as what I think. But many people such as me are always confuse about therapy, consulting and mentoring. These people are helping clients to improve their performance but not the professional coaching.
Therapy focus on the past and help to fix the problem. Consulting provides the analysis and the plans for the company, just like to give the answer. And mentoring have a hugh knowledge, like a teacher to help a student to be success.
But coaching is total difference with above, professional coaching will give differ type of conversation. It always asking questions but not give the answers. It focus on the client’s problem and helping the client to make its future plan. And professional coaching has the skill about listening.
