Who is a Coach & What is Coaching?
A coach is your companion in your journey to self-discovery. A coach clarifies and aligns with what the client wants to achieve. A coach holds the client responsible and accountable for results. A coach helps you to achieve your goals faster than you could have done if you were working on your own; you can refer to a coach as a catalyst that quickens the process of progression.
Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. It empowers individuals and teams and help them reach their goals.

Why Coaching Is Good For Your Self Development?
For those that have experienced coaching, they will refer to it as transformational and impactful. What is it about Coaching that should interest you? Truth be told, if you do not experience Coaching throughout your entire life, you may not feel you have missed out, you will still achieve great things. What Coaching does however is that it accelerates your progress and helps you to achieve much more than you could have achieved.
A lot of world leaders have keyed into the benefits that Coaching offers and in the words of one of the richest men on earth – Bill Gates “everyone needs a coach”.
A lot of times you want to do something but you find yourself unable to get it done. Some of the factors responsible could be procrastination, fear or limiting beliefs and low self- confidence that clouds your thinking and drive. A coach can help you surmount this and help you find your motivation to push forward.
The beauty of Coaching is that it is empowering, result-driven and works with your agenda. Coaching does not prescribe a solution for you; rather a coach helps you to discover yourself and works with you to set your goals and you have the responsibility to identify actions you can use to deliver on your goals. You as the client owns the responsibility for your goals and actions. A coach is not judgmental and will keep your issue Strictly confidential.
I strongly believe everyone needs a coach and you should get one for your business, career, life issues like building your confidence, marriage, wellbeing and in many other areas.
