What is Coaching?
The International Coaching Federation (ICF) defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential, which is particularly important in today’s uncertain and complex environment. Coaches honor the client as the expert in his or her life and work and believe every client is creative, resourceful and whole. Standing on this foundation, the coach’s responsibility is to:
- Discover, clarify, and align with what the client wants to achieve
- Encourage client self-discovery
- Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies
- Hold the client responsible and accountable
This process helps clients dramatically improve their outlook on work and life, while improving leadership skills and unlocking potential.
The Benefits of Coaching
Professional coaching focuses on change identification, setting goals, creating desired outcomes and managing personal change. An individual or team might choose to work with a coach for many reasons, including but not limited to the following:
- Something urgent, compelling or exciting is at stake (a challenge, stretch goal or opportunity)
- A gap exists in knowledge, skills, confidence or resources
- A desire to accelerate results
- A lack of clarity with choices to be made
- Success has started to become problematic
- Work and life are out of balance, creating unwanted consequences
Core strengths need to be identified, along with how best to leverage them

TYPES OF COACHING
What our clients are saying about our work together…
Aaaaand because in your presence I am always reminded of my potential even at times when I could not see it or locate it myself”“I count on The Alignment project for smart, insightful and ass kicking observations of my own beliefs and behavior. Even if I don’t initially like it. Which is what is so helpful in aiding me to make changes, especially uncomfortable ones.”“I can’t express exactly what happened but as a result of our sessions life is much enjoyable now. You certainly have a gift to help people”
“I was able to discover what my blocks were in order to face and remove them so that I could accomplish my goals. It’s nice to be able to say “Yeah me!” not with arrogance but with pride. Why didn’t I do this sooner?”
