Find out more information about Coaching

Coaching focuses on preparing professionals who can help others overcome challenging work situations in various fields. Coaches teach clients to reach their full potential through practical exercises and self-motivation. This discipline does not necessarily teach how to complete specific tasks, but rather makes use of effective tools and techniques to help learners discover their own solutions to achieve personal or professional goals.

Coaching is related to other disciplines such as education, management, training, psychology, neuroscience, social sciences, and various forms of counselling.

A successful coach usually first learns how to apply his knowledge on himself, by undergoing his own personal coaching. Professional coaching uses a range of communication skills such as targeted restatements, listening, questioning, clarifying, etc. Students enrolled in coaching studies learn how to create their own coaching models, based on their personal strengths and insight, and how to discover a niche people might be interested in. Other practical skills include learning how to develop a class schedule, building awareness of people's strengths and weaknesses, analytical and emotional skills, and more.

Graduates of academic coaching programmes may find employment in a wide range of fields of interest such as business, human resources, sports, social work, politics, personal-development, health. Other examples of coaching careers include career, divorce, or conflict coaching.
