What Is Coaching?

“Coaching is unlocking people’s potential to maximize their own performance…Building awareness, responsibility and self-belief is the goal of a coach.”

I came across this great definition of coaching in a book review in the current issue of choice, the magazine of professional coaching (yes, it’s all in lowercase). The author of this definition is John Whitmore in Coaching for Performance: Growing Human Potential and Purpose published in 1982.

Sharing this definition is a fitting way to announce that I have just been recertified as a Certified Organizer Coach® for the next three years by the Institute for APPLIED COACHING®. Thank you to everyone who has supported me in obtaining my recertification!
