Q?

What is the science behind coaching?

A.

“Once it fires, it wires! New discoveries in the field of neuroscience are being made every day and some of the most exciting are those that involve the phenomena of “neuroplasticity”. ”Neuroplasticity” is the ability to rewire our brains at any age. Coaches take advantage of “neuroplasticity” and other mechanisms in order to help their clients bring mindful attention to creating new habits and beliefs and thus form new neural pathways. For example, when a coach and client try out new perspectives, a new neural connection fires. And once it fires and this wires a new pathway and connection. With homework, inquiries, and support, the coach reinforces this new pathway in the client until it becomes automatic, integrated, and embodied. “

Q?

What is the difference between therapy, coaching, and consulting?

A.

Therapy focuses on healing an emotional or behavioral problem, or dealing with a disruptive situation.

Coaching, on the other hand, focuses on heightening your functioning so that you can achieve excellence. Coaching can be therapeutic and healing, but this is really a side effect of the process.

During coaching, we will define what excellence means to you. Then we will amplify your existing potential to reach your career development goals.

Coaching differs from consulting. Consulting assumes that you do not have the answers. The focus is on providing solutions, information and training to solve a specific problem.

Coaching, on the other hand, assumes that you have the resources you need and it helps you to access them.

By focusing on your emotional intelligence, a coach can equip you deal with any problem that arises without having to book another session to discuss the way ahead.

Q?

How long does coaching normally last?

A.
