‘Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to
maximise their own performance. It is helping them
to learn rather than teaching them.’

Sir John Whitmore’


Coaching is

A partnership between coach and
coachee

A positively focused way to explore
options and opportunities

A process to create solutions which
result in sustained change

Coaching isn’t

A method to get an experts advice
on what to do (that’s consulting)

Observing and learning from a seasoned professional
(that’s mentoring or training)

A quick fix
(that’s usually not effective)
