What is coaching?

What coaching is NOT – counselling, therapy, training, consulting, education – rather-

Coaching is about having someone available for you to learn with – about yourself, your business, your behaviours and how they are impacting and in fact, creating your life. It’s like having someone running alongside you invisibly, providing support, feedback, encouragement, challenge and accountability.

How often do you have great, creative ideas, but just “never get around to it”? Or, wish to do something BUT you don’t have time, BUT you don’t know where to start? As I coach, I have no agenda other than for you to achieve your goals. Coaching, with Gai Foskett, will help YOU overcome your BUTS!

Coaching is working one on one with a coach, either by phone or face to face, with specific objectives in mind. My approach is structured, yet flexible. My coaching style is aligned to the International Coach Federation Core competencies of Coaching – these competencies are around relationship building, listening, speaking, questioning, thinking, being present – all designed to give you the support and space to think things through and take action to achieve your goals and/or make the changes you want to make.

It is a process of self-leadership that enables people to gain clarity about who they are, what they are doing, why they are doing it, and where they want to go.
