Coaching minute: Is coaching the right call for you?

Most of us feel like we have some idea of what a coach is.  Many of us learn the concept early in life through exposure to sports, and we may find ourselves informally coaching or being coached by those around us.

But what is a coach really, and what does coaching mean in professional settings?  How could you or a colleague benefit from coaching?  The International Coaching Federation, where I am credentialed as a coach, offers a definition of coaching and is a great resource for learning more.  In this Coaching Minute, I explain what I’ve gotten out of coaching myself.  I’ll share more about coaching in the coming months to help you decide if it’s right for you.
