Coaching vs. Counseling:
- Coaching focuses on where you are presently and where you are headed, with a goal of helping you gain clarity about your vision, eliminate obstacles to your success, accelerate the pace of personal growth and achieve results that empower you to live your best life – professionally and personally.
- Coaching is forward-focused, counseling tends to deal more with past issues in which you may find yourself stuck and struggling.
- We may occasionally discuss something that has occurred in the past, for the purpose of clarifying the present, but your coaching will not focus on resolving the past. If your past is simply a fact, you are probably ready for coaching.
Coaching vs. Consulting:
A coach focuses on helping you walk your unique path to success. As the client, you are responsible for the results you receive as a result of coaching.
A coach will help you discover how to become more of who you need to be to achieve those results and identify what you may need to do differently.
A consultant takes responsibility for a specific project, acting as a specialist, providing specific deliverables and knowledge.
Coaching vs. Mentoring:
A coach focuses on the development of people in general, and the development of your unique path in particular.
A mentor guides you towards a specific path of development. I am more interested in guiding you to the unique and divinely-ordained path that is meant for you.
A coach will help you uncover the answers that lie within you. Consider me a catalyst for your success.
