I love this description of coaching from Janet Harvey, president of the International Coach Federation:
“In coaching you are seen as a whole, capable, and creative person. When you pause long enough to listen to yourself and listen well to how you perceive and interpret situations and relationships, you can act — what you rely on internally is important to be conscious of. Through the coach-client interaction, there’s an opportunity for you to get that awareness and clarity, so that you can choose consciously in a way that aligns with what’s true about you, rather than what someone else thinks is true.”
