Today the term coaching is widely used and for this reason it is important to understand what coaching means and how a professional works in this field.
The best known meaning of coaching is the sporting one. At its origins, in fact, coaching - born in the United States in the early 1970s - became known as a discipline linked to increasing the performance of athletes.
Later used in large companies to improve the performance of their managers, this method has gradually extended its field of application to all areas of enhancement and potential for personal growth. Today it is recognised globally as an effective tool for achieving self-determined change/improvement goals in all areas of life.
Coaching is therefore a solution-oriented personal development methodology, which emerges as a collaborative relationship (partnership) between the coach and the coachee, be it an individual (coach 1:1), a group (group coaching) or an organisation (team coaching). The coach facilitates the session by accompanying the client to reflect on his own values and systems of thought, to enhance his resources, personal skills and competences, so as to identify not only his own goals, but also a road map to achieve them.
During the process, the coachee can question possible alternatives and explore what is holding him back from concretely achieving the set goals. Doing coaching, therefore, requires knowing how to look at reality from a different perspective, and thus approaching one's projects in an original way through an effective action plan. The coachee is an active and responsible part of the solution found at all times.
Coaching differs from mentoring and psychotherapy in that it does not provide advice based on experience, provide solutions, or analyze the client's past . It complements these disciplines and rather, it can enhance their benefits. For this reason, in Wisdrome's approach, coaching supports design activities. With coaching we help the client to be aware of his goals and we accompany him in their achievement; with collaborative management we provide the client with the assistance of experts in the sector to see tangible results.
Faced with the multiplication of online coaching services, It is important to underline that the International Coaching Federation (ICF) is the institution in charge of promoting and accrediting coaching programs in Italy and around the world.
