What is Coaching?
Coaching is an ongoing conversation that empowers a person (or team) to fully live out
God’s calling-in their life and profession. The goal of coaching is to develop a person
(or team) to more effectively reflect, correct, and generate new learning.
Coaching is an advanced form of adult learning. Adults learn better through dialogue and discovery rather than lecture and listening. Maybe you can relate to Winston Churchill when he said, “I am always ready to learn although I do not always like being taught.”
Coaching focuses on learning rather than teaching. Coachees (those being coached) are in the driver’s seat. Coachees choose their own growth goals… reflect deeply their current situation… think through their options (and) decide their next steps. The coach actively listens and asks reflective questions, supportively challenging limited beliefs and behaviors. Advice-giving is kept to a minimum so that the coachee can discover Holy Spirit-inspired solutions. (Webb, Keith; Momentum-January/February 2007, p.79)
