"Coaching is partnering with others in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential." — The International Coaching Federation
The focus of Coaching is to explore a person's desired outcomes, the barriers to realizing them, and possible action steps to fulfill them. People seek coaching for a variety of reasons: vocational calling, transitions, personal health, relational dynamics, and spiritual growth. A Coach is one who comes alongside someone in the process of determining what path to take, all the time believing in the person's integrity and ability to choose the right one for them.
"I sought Marilyn's coaching during a major career transition. She listened, asked open questions, made appropriate observations and helped me with practical action steps to determine my personal goals and find a career suited to my talents and future dreams. Through our coaching sessions, I came to a clarity of purpose and was able to address the obstacles, doubts, and insecurities that kept me from moving forward. She helped me move past what seemed impossible so I could pursue what I really wanted." A.K., Seattle
