What is Coaching? Coaching is a profession of partnering with clients in thought-provoking and creative processes that inspire them to maximize their personal and professional potential—according to the International Coach Federation. Among the many benefits of being a certified coach are flexibility and access; coaching can be in-person or phone-based, working with people all over the world, with opportunities for travel. Coaching, as a rewarding career, can provide opportunities to assist others in their personal and professional lives, and can positively impact individuals, groups, and organizations.
