What is Coaching and who is it for?

Broadly speaking, coaching is a way to support change and development in a person’s life.  Until the late 20th century, coaching was limited to maximizing human performance in athletics.  As change and complexity in organizations accelerated, the coaching model was adopted by progressive companies to quickly develop managers and executives, and push their performance to higher and higher levels.  The coaching field then broadened to include life coaching - supporting personal development beyond the workplace: relationships, family, well-being, life purpose.  Training programs and accreditation standards developed to keep pace.  Today, anyone who feels pulled to higher levels of personal or professional performance can use a trained coach to leverage both the effort and the result.
