How Coaching Changed My Life

Why Coaching Works

For more information on what coaching entails, please refer to the Q&A section of the International Coach Federation (ICF)’s website here.

Change By Design and adheres to the ICF guidelines, including these golden rules:

  • Confidentiality and trust – the coaching is founded on the principle that everything discusses is confidential between the coach and coachee. Should there be a need for progress reporting, this will agreed between the coachee and the company.
  • The solution lies within the coachee – no-one will ever have more expertise on your situation than yourself. Your coach is not a mentor, consultant nor a psychologist. S/he will help you find the answers you need through enquiry and self-knowledge.
  • Action based – the purpose of coaching is always to deepen the learning and forward the action. In other words, it is goal oriented. Your coach will set homework and will be a accountability partner. The responsibility to complete the work will however lie squarely on the shoulders of the coachee.
