Coaching in both a sporting or business or even life context involves enhancing performance by removing the impediments or the interference that restrict potential.
As a performance coach I engage, usually one-on-one, to accompany a client in building awareness and responsibility when developing their leadership. Dealing with real-life scenarios, we discuss and process goals, realities, options and the actions to be taken.
The coach does not have the answers but has the questions and the skills to unlock the potential of their coachee and accompany them towards a new and immensely satisfying and rewarding level of performance.
