What is coaching?

Coaching is the process of supporting an individual to make shifts in thinking to enable resolution of issues and situations, and to seize opportunities.  A coach listens, clarifies and asks questions so an individual is better able to think through an issue, situation or opportunity in order to meet their greatest potential.   Coaching incorporates an appreciative approach, grounded in what’s right, what’s working, what’s wanted and what’s needed to get there.

According to the International Coaching Federation (ICF), coaching brings many benefits, including fresh perspectives on personal challenges, enhanced decision-making skills, greater inter-personal effectiveness and increased confidence. Those who experience coaching can also expect improvement in productivity, satisfaction with life and work and realization of relevant goals.

Aldebaran Coaching and Consulting believes that people are naturally creative, resourceful and whole.  When clients look inside they find that they are the best people to redesign their lives.  Our clients know the value of sharing ideas with someone who understands them and is subjective enough to want the best for them, yet objective enough not to be biased.  Talking about options with someone who can listen is often enough to have it become clear for the client.  Aldebaran will help you determine your ideal goal and then work with you to create the steps you need to take in order to reach that goal.

Aldebaran Coaching and Consulting is a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF).  When selecting a coach or a coach training program, professionals around the world look for the ICF logo.   ICF is an independent, globally recognized accreditation organization for coaches.  As a member of the ICF, coaches must meet standards established globally as well as adhere to a strict code of ethics.  When you hire a coach who is a member of the ICF, you know you are hiring quality!  Sherri Stephanson, president of Aldebaran Coaching and Consulting is a member of the ICF and is accredited as an Associate Certified Coach.  Check out the International Coaching Federation website and find out all the good reasons for hiring a coach!

  1. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours nowadays, but I never discovered any fascinating article
    like yours. It is beautiful worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the web
    will be much more helpful than ever before.
