CCF Definition of Coaching

Coaching is a professional relationship that helps people break through their limitations to achieve extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses or organizations. The process of coaching encourages clients deepen their learning, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life through self-discovery and self-empowerment. In each meeting, the client chooses the focus of conversation, while the coach listens and contributes with observations and questions. This interaction creates clarity and moves the client into action. Coaching accelerates the client’s progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice. Coaching concentrates on discovering and clarifying goals, and eliciting strategies and solutions to get the client on track to achieve their future goals at a pace that is achievable for the client. CCF coaches recognize that results depend on the client’s intentions, choices and actions as they are supported by the coach’s efforts and application of the coaching process.
