Community and Coaching True community is the process of deep respect and true listening for the needs of the other people in the community. The International Coach Federation defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that
inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
Community and coaching truly belong together.
The ICF Global Coaching Client Study shows most clients reported improved work performance, better business management, more efficient time management, increased team effectiveness, and more growth and opportunities. The same study found that coaching clients noted greater self-confidence, enhanced relationships,
more effective communication skills, better work-life balance and an improvement in wellness. When we integrate coaching into the fabric of what we do every day, all this stuff about who we coach, when we coach, how much time we coach becomes irrelevant.
The community at large is benefiting when we foster strength by maintaining positive interactions through our coaching conversations whether it is a contracted coaching conversation or a friendly coach like conversation.
How will you coach in the community?
