Coaching In A Nutshell

Professional coaching is an interactive, ongoing process that helps individuals and organizations develop more rapidly and produce more satisfying results. Clients set better goals, take more action, make better decisions, and more fully use their natural strengths.

Although there are as many approaches to and styles of coaching as there are coaches, the core of our work rests on these common building blocks:

  1. The client is naturally creative, resourceful and whole.
    • Nothing is broken or needs fixing.
    • The coach has the questions, the client has the answers.
  2. The agenda comes from the client.
    • The client is in charge. The relationship is focused on the client getting the results they want.
    • The coach ensures that the client stays focused and in action, always steering towards fulfillment and balance.
  3. The relationship is a designed alliance.
    • Power is granted to the relationship, not the coach.
    • The client has a role in declaring how they want to be coached.
    • The relationship is custom tailored to the client.

Professional coaches are trained to listen and observe, to elicit solutions and strategies from the client. We believe that our clients are naturally creative, resourceful and whole, and that our job is to provide support to enhance the client's skills, resources, and creativity already present. While the coach provides feedback and an objective perspective, the client is responsible for taking the steps to produce the results he or she desires. The coach is unattached to the outcome.

SteppingStones coaching provides you with the structure, support and feedback you need, and immediately useful tools, information and resources to help you realize optimum success more quickly and with greater focus and clarity.
