What is coaching ?

What is it?

Generally, the word "coaching" refers to the conditioning or training that an athlete performs, helped out by their coach.
However, it is not the only meaning we can assign to this term.
In fact, coaching also refers to the professional training given by consultants who have big experience of the corporate world, and whose goal is to enable everyone to increase their communication potential and their skill to determine solutions to their problems at work. It is also known as a "feedback-giving" activity.
Over the last decade, the coaching field has grown hugely, not only in firms but also next to the individuals who wonder about their professional prospects, and it is now regarded as the reference with respect to professional training.

The skills developed during the coaching sessions, such as communication, leadership, organization, relationship potential, but also self-confidence and perceptiveness in making decisions, are approached as the major assets for a career success in the 21st century.
