What is Coaching?

It’s sometimes hard to explain what coaching is. Most of us when we hear the word “coaching” we think of our high school basketball coach. But coaching in this context isn’t about telling a person what to do, or like the coach I witnessed yesterday, screaming obscenities at his players, and this was AFTER they had scored a goal.

Coaching is a process where the coach ask questions and helps the coachee process his or her thoughts, to get them to an action point or decision. This video created by the International Coaching Federation does a great job of explaining coaching.
