What is Coaching?

At CLL we recognise that each coach will come to their own definition appropriate for them as a coach in their context. Here are some possible definitions:

“Unlocking a person’s potential to maximize their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them” Sir John Whitmore

A partnership of equals whose aim is to achieve speedy, increased and sustainable effectiveness through focused learning in every respect of the client’s life. Coaching raises self-awareness and identifies choices. Jenny Rogers

A method of work related learning that relies primarily on one to one conversations Erik de Haan
