Experience Coaching‬!

Coaching sign or poster for business advice, tuition, life and mentoring.

This week is an exciting week for Coaches all over the world.  Why?  It is “International Coaching Week” May 16 – 22, 2016.  The coaching community will be promoting coaching in a variety of ways.  Coaches may have special offers or pro-bono coaching throughout the week and sharing about their particular coaching niche.  The people who have experienced coaching may be sharing as well on how coaching has helped them personally.  The coaching profession will be buzzing everywhere.

What is coaching?

Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. ~ International Coaching Federation (ICF) Definition of Coaching

To learn more about Coaching here is a video by ICF ~ What is Coaching?

A coach poses powerful questions which leads the client to their own solutions.  The answers are within the client.  This allows them to take action and move closer towards want they want in life.

Coaching is client focused:

The Coach recognizes that each client is a capable person with the capability to determine their own priorities, goals, and action steps. The coaching process is focused on empowering the client. Each client chooses when to enter a coaching relationship, communicates in a way that is comfortable to them, chooses their primary focus during coaching, and chooses when to end the coaching relationship.

Why Coaching?

Coaching helps clients to feel supported, encouraged, inspired to pursue their aspirations and goals.  As well as the ability to cope with change and challenges they may face in the process.

Why do I love coaching?

When coaching a client and hearing them talk it out and they realize they came up with a solution or next action step for achieving what they truly want.  Seeing them smile when they have achieved their goal or what they wanted in life! 🙂

~ As a coach I inspire others to pursue what they truly want in life. ~

Effective Leaders Encourage Motivation


What is a motivated employee?  The employee has the desire to accomplish what they want in life and work.  Motivation of an employee comes from within; through their thoughts, beliefs, ambitions and goals.  If the employee is not committed, motivation will not happen.  A motivated employee has a positive outlook at work and like what they do.  They have the desire to do what it takes to get the job done.

Intrinsic Motivation vs Extrinsic Motivation

Intrinsic motivation comes from within the employee.  Extrinsic motivation comes from outside of the employee; such as awards, money, recognition or praise.  Employees who feel motivated are more likely to be persistent and productive in the workplace.  When there is lack of motivation, the employees have no interest or desire to perform their work duties.

As a leader;  lead by example with an encouraging attitude.  Make sure you hire motivated and goal driven people for your organization which is the key to a successful business.

Self reflection question:

How are you staying motivated?
