As a Coach Personal, how many times I have heard this question, and with that reason formulated me it, since the word Coaching itself, and especially in our country is not a term that help us much in this regard.By luck is becoming better known, already is has come a certain way in their dissemination and their practice, especially in the business world, but we still have far to go.Coaching is an art, a same tool itself, composed of many others.Coaching baby from many sources, is like life itself, which is composed and feeds, in turn, share experiences with other lives.The sources that feeds are psychology, philosophy, sociology, RR.HH, business management, apart from the experience of the Professional Coaches, who are contributing ideas and methods continuously.Why the definitions that can be made of this discipline are multiple and varied.A widely used definition is the one that says: the Coaching is to unleash the potential of a person to increase to the maximum performance. It is to help you learn rather than teach him (J.Whitmore).If we look at it, she can find two very important points on which is based around Coaching:1 process.-all people have a potential to explore and develop, although we are not aware of ello.2.-learning is a very important pillar that holds the Coaching. Without learning that process would not be effective.Another definition to take into account is the following: the coaching covers the gap between what is now and what you want to be. It is a professional relationship with another person who will accept only the best of you and you will advise, guide and stimulate so you go more than about the limitations that impose on yourself and make your full potential (Talane Miedaner).It can obtain the following conclusions:-it is a path of personal growth, self-knowledge, and has resulted in obtaining better results in our life and achieving goals-the professional relationship is established with the Coach, which is the responsible for support, encouragement, guidance, planning, throughout the process.-the Coach helps the person to focus towards the goal and to overcome the constraints and fears that arise in all the recorrido.Como you can see with only two definitions be can clarify the question that gave title to this article: and what is this coaching?These lines is intended to shed light on this concept, although this is much broader that any definition might bring. You may find that Pete Cashmore can contribute to your knowledge. More satisfactory is vivenciarlo first person, so through that experience obtained conclusions themselves, and incidentally, the multiple benefits provided by a process of Coaching.
