Coaching Defined

The International Coach Federation defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.” In a strict coaching model, the coach functions as a facilitator, helping the client identify and implement solutions.

In executive coaching, coaching and consulting are often blended, providing a clear and collaborative path of action for the client.  However, in consulting, the coach/consultant functions as “the expert” by providing the client with “answers” — ideas and suggestions for a new course of action. Often Accelerence functions both as a coach and consultant by collaborating with the client to explore new perspectives and to facilitate new courses of action.

Coaching is not counseling.  Counseling is typically best indicated for a client when certain key factors are present, such as addiction or other active pathological behaviors that preclude the client’s ability to effect changes in their life. Exposure to abuse by family members that have left an indelible emotional impact during one’s formative years can result in self-destructive behaviors that inhibit their ability to effect change in their life. In situations like these, we refer clients to an experienced, qualified therapist to seek the help they need to heal.
