Coaching is a discipline associated with Psychology , in which the coach guides the client on the path towards his or her objectives and personal development. Thanks to Socratic questions, the coach helps the client to get to know himself better, to improve his emotional intelligence, to overcome his fears and limiting beliefs and to achieve a more realistic image of his goals and needs.
Although the coach can often be seen as a speaker or motivator, in reality, his aim is for the coachee himself to discover his own potential and take responsibility for his own change. Coaching, in short, promotes your client’s self-learning and empowers him in his transformation.
