Terms and Conditions

Definitions

  • Professional Coaching: is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential. Professional Coaching is an ongoing professional relationship that helps people product extraordinary results in their lives, careers, business or organisations. Through the process of coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their performance and enhance the quality of their life. In each meeting the client chooses the focus of the conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations and questions. This interaction creates clarity and moves the client into action.
    Coaching accelerates the clients progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice. Coaching concentrates on where clients are now and what they are willing to do to get where they want to be in the future. Coaches recognise that results are a matter of the clients intentions, choices and actions, supported by the coaches efforts and application of the coaching process.
  • Professional Coaching Relationship: A professional coaching relationship exists when coaching includes an agreement (including contracts) that defines the responsibility of each party.
  • Client: The person that is being coached.
  • Conflict of Interest: A situation in which a coach has a private or personal interest sufficient to appear to influence the objective of his or her official duties as a coach and a professional.
