What is Coaching?



Coaching is the process of enhancing performance

by helping clients to achieve goals!



Barbara Hibbart Confidence Coaching

The coaching process includes :


  • identifying what people want to achieve
  • setting realistic goals to create change
  • working with clients to make change happen
  • achieving goals
  • celebrating success

Coaching is now a widely accepted process which can be used to create change in all aspects of peoples lives.  Many companies use coaching as a standard management tool to maintain standards and enhance performance.  It is considered to be an important aspect of a managers’ skills set.  However it is also often out-sourced – providing a level of anonymity.  Most top executives work with their own coaches who help them achieve in their work life and maintain an effective work/life balance.

Many people now work with Personal Coaches – sometimes known as Life Coaches.  Coaches help to create change in their clients personal and business lives and to create a positive work/life balance.

Most of us have experienced coaching in some form, from quite a young age.  We may have been coached by our parents / carers at key stages in our development such as potty training, learning to ride a bike, scoring more goals when playing football or passing exams. Sometimes coaching may be informal support such as simply showing an interest and sometimes a more formal approach may be taken such as hiring a tutor or a coach.

Why might you work with a Business Coach?

‘Life is better when you have a plan!’  Stephen Covey

  • support while planning and creating realistic goals
  • a sounding board for new ideas
  • a way to speed up the process of change
  • keeping goals on target and preventing procrastination
  • enabling achievement at a higher level

Business Coaching

What is Business Coaching?

Businesses change and evolve during their life cycle.  Sometimes there is a need to introduce dramatic change due to a change in personal circumstances or a change in the market.  On other occasions a small ‘tweak’ of existing processes and strategies can make a big difference to the financial stability and well being of your business.

How might Coaching help your business?

Business Coaching concentrates on the principle of identifying where the business is and where you want it to be.  Then by working with a coach, SMART goals can be created that will enable the required change to take place.  This change could include issues such as :

    • expansion
    • change of focus
    • relocation
    • change in staffing
    • change in the market
    • new product lines
    • creation of a new business

If you are thinking about creating change in your business and would like some support either before, during or after the change takes place, please contact me for a free initial discussion.
