Coaching is the art of asking questions to guide individuals through the exploration, and discovery of new ideas, resulting in reaching goals.
Coaching is the method of finding and managing the changes necessary to achieve those goals and make your dreams come true.
Many individuals and organizations utilize this type of technique to improve performance and skills on a day-to-day basis.
No, coaching is a method based on asking questions and questioning the other person, until they find the solution for themselves.
Each coach accompanies their client to inquire into their beliefs, thoughts, and emotions; so they can find their truth. Coaching consists of awakening the potential of the client, to maximize their performance. It is about helping them learn, rather than teaching them.
In therapy the “why” is analyzed, in coaching, you work on the “why not?” and sometimes on the «what for?” of what the customer wants. In coaching, we generally work towards the future that the client wants to design by modifying the present, therapy usually begins with the past.
Therapy focuses on what is wrong while coaching focuses on what can be improved and developed.
Coaching focuses on what you want and what is possible.
Research conducted by the International Coach Federation has revealed several ways clients have found coaching to be valuable to their lives (ICF 1998, ICF 2009).
- Improvements in self-confidence and self-esteem.
- Harmonious relationships, better communication, and heightened interpersonal skills.
- Increased work performance and sharper business management.
- Greater career opportunities.
- Improved goal-setting and higher rates of project completion.

- Improved work/life balance, more fun and more free time.
- Improvements in health, fitness and wellness, more energy and lowered stress levels.
- Success in breaking bad habits.
- Improvements in quality of life.

In the same two studies, coaching clients said they found life coaching to be worth the investment. The first study, conducted in 1998, found that 98.5% of coaching clients said their coaching was “valuable” or “very valuable”. The second, conducted in 2009, found 99% of clients were “satisfied” or “very satisfied”. According to a third study (ICF 2004), the aspects that coaching clients found most valuable were:
- Brainstorming with their coach.
- Having an independent viewpoint.
- The encouragement they received.
- Being accountable.
- Being listened to.
Coaching is a coordinated set of actions aimed to improve the development of the client, so they can reach their full potential.
Coaching is an interactive process of personal transformation in which the coach and client work together to improve results and accomplish goals in both personal and professional environments.
Coaching helps individuals become more aware, it offers them a greater field of vision, a space in which they can contemplate more options than they were able to consider before.
The coaching process generates long-term results and requires sustained work of at least three months. However, you begin to benefit from coaching starting with the first session when you begin to open your mind and make discoveries.
The best part comes when you put your plan into action and begin seeing results you would not have seen otherwise.
The coaching process is between 16 and 18 sessions that take place throughout a bit over one year. Coaching guarantees the transformation of leadership with extraordinary results in any person who is motivated to do so.
Of course. We create an initial process to ensure you find the coach that best suits your needs. If you are not satisfied, we will change your coach.
