Coaching is a consulting concept that is focused on practical support and the solution of concrete challenges the coachee faces. Coaching essentially understands itself as a support in a job-related context.
Coaching supports people in finding independent solutions to their concerns, to optimise their performance potentials and to create healthy life structures. In today’s information society with its racy need for reaction, change and adaptation, coaching is becoming increasingly important as a professional and a personality-oriented support to managers, employees and teams.
Coaching supports people in professions and honorary functions in finding their own solutions quickly and effectively. It helps clients to overcome obstacles, identify resources and translate them into options of action.
Coaches don’t interfere directly. Their roles in consulting differ depending on the issue at hand. Their competences are multifarious. Psychological, organisational and management-related know-how is indispensable in order to competently support people in positions of responsibility.
Coaching is target-oriented according to an agreed assignment within a fixed framework (number and frequency of meetings, agreed fee, etc.) Trained coaches have acquired a “professionalism of not knowing”, i.e. their competence consists in the support of the process and the skill of understanding the field.
