To see clearly, often all it takes
is to change the point of view."
(Antoine de Saint-Exupéry)
Coaching -vs- Training:
Other than a classical training, coaching does not provide any direct solutions. A coach accompanies the development of own solutions.
Coaching refers to structured discussions between a coach and a coachee (client), e.g. on everyday professional issues (leadership, communication and cooperation). Goals of these discussions range from assessment and development of personal competencies and perspectives to suggestions for self-reflection and the overcoming of conflicts with employees, colleagues or supervisors.
The coach acts as a neutral, critical discussion partner and uses methods from the entire spectrum of personnel and management development, depending on the target.
