Introduction to Coaching:

To define coaching as a hybrid resource that uses a range of tools, techniques, knowledge, and applications for various topics such as psychology, science, communication, language, management and planning, research among other possibilities, diving and researching results that translate into benefits in different contexts, whether personal, social, family, professional, financial or even spiritual.

“In the future, all leaders will be trained.” by Jack Walsh, CEO of GE.

In this way, Coaching applies the process of change (improvement) that translates into positive and lasting advantages, always in a specific time period (initial relationship). Change means removing the individual from the state in which they find themselves in a comfort zone and taking  them to the state they desire in a way that satisfies them. It is an opportunity to improve and increase confidence, self-esteem, motivation and development.

The process is confidentially conducted and in what are commonly called sessions, where the professional (trainer) has the task of supporting, accompanying and motivating the beneficiary to gain awareness of his  / her real potential and to achieve what he / she wants.

It should be emphasized that each trainer has his own strategy to develop all his sessions with the beneficiary. However, the strategy widely used in the field of coaching is interactive intervention, where the coach has an active conversation, and the trainer identifies a topic and poses a series of questions that the beneficiary must answer. The coach can also comment and insist on points that are unclear or that are important. He therefore generates a climate of trust, and at the same time he knows what the beneficiary is thinking, and he has the ability to obtain ample and valuable information about what occupies his thinking, and what are his strengths, weaknesses and abilities, and he is thereby able to know the condition of the beneficiary of the session, which will facilitate the correct identification of objectives and strategies, activities or tasks and resources needed to achieve an approach to the proposed objective.

In addition to being a confidential process, coaching is viewed as a flexible tool that can be applied in any context and addressed to any type of person, carried out in individual or group sessions.

One should consider the necessity of understanding the coaching process correctly: Coaches do not improve people's lives, but rather provide conditions or teach individuals (through static tools) to help them improve and develop their lives.

Coaching is a process perceived as ongoing and not an event scheduled in a definitive or isolated manner. Within the agreement between the actors, what will be developed will be studied and determined, always on the basis that it is a permanent and, above all, ongoing agreement.

We can distinguish between coaching at two main levels: Self-coaching, the tool that meets an individual's personal needs, or the business coaching, that aims to meet business needs.

In which situations or moments can Coaching help?

There is some confusion among members of the community (perhaps because of the novelty of this process), regarding the areas of work of coaching, while many people believe, on the one hand, that the coach is a psychologist, others see them as specialists working for people with some problems (family, personal, professional).

Coaching is recommended, without any doubt, to any individual regardless of age, sex, nationality or occupation. The coach does not act as a psychiatrist, and he does not help people with psychological problems, but facilitates the tools necessary for individuals to grow and develop themselves.

Different situations in which coach can help others:

Any leader can become a coach, and we can find out in the list we show below, the different situations in which a coach can help others:

  • increasing professional results
  • Looking for new challenges
  • Occupation Change
  • Life Values
  • Creating business or searching for ideas and possibilities
  • Desiring a new profession (ideal profession)
  • Leadership (professional or personal)
  • Family relations
  • Personal Relationships
  • Helping with the diet and diet.
  • Improving living standards.

What is the difference between coaching and cupping?

The training is based on the development of abilities and skills publicly and is often training courses or teaching workshops and other methods aimed at the education and development of participants collectively. Coaching does not rely on training or on direct communication with the beneficiary in highly confidential sessions.
