What is Coaching?

The ICF defines coaching as “Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential”.

At Beacon, we use a variety of approaches to coaching in order to help our clients maximize their potential, so that they can bring their greatest work to their team, organization, community and even to the world. As professional coaches, we provide an ongoing partnership designed to help clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives. Ultimately, we want to help people improve their performances and enhance the quality of their lives.

We use our resources in coaching knowledge and methodology to design programs that meet the unique needs of each individual client. We challenge our clients to try new ways of thinking, speaking, listening and acting.  We advocate lightness, curiosity, compassion and respectful honesty and use other tools to support our clients to find strength and more importantly, courage needed to make changes or try something new.

Our coaches are trained to listen, to observe and to customize our approach to individual client needs. We seek to elicit solutions and strategies with and from the client; we believe the client is creative and resourceful. Our job is to provide support and guidance to enhance the skills, resources, and creativity that the client already possess.

As we come from different “schools” of coaching, we are more equipped to pair our coaches and clients to deliver best results based on the strengths of our coaches.
