What is coaching?
Coaching a person, a team, or an organization means accompanying the individual or group of individuals such that he, she or they find by themselves the answers to questions they foster or to problems they encounter.
Coaching thus allows for the improvement of professional efficiency and the accompaniment through complex professional periods, such as: difficult projects, periods of crisis, mergers, acquisitions, transitions, transfers, promotions, conflicts, expatriations, repatriations, reconversions, or returns from maternity or parental leave.
The coach acts as a catalyst. He or she accompanies the coached individual, without for that matter being an interventionist. He or she is distinguished in this respect from the consultant who offers advice and solutions. He or she also differs from the therapist, who is more focused on the study of causes.
Every type of coaching is different, and the operating mode is defined with the client over the course of the first session.
