What is coaching?

* Coaching is the art of guiding individuals or teams to identify, crystallize and then achieve goals

* Coaching is a way of maintaining focus on helping individuals or groups make changes in their lives in order to improve or accomplish desired goals more easily and faster than might otherwise be possible on their own

* The coach provides support by asking powerful questions, providing challenges, structure and focus and by holding the client accountable to action
