NLP Coaching is about getting the very best out of someone – it is a unique way of developing people. Whatever reason people choose to hire NLP coaches, the first thing you'll notice from any coaching relationship is that it's a two-way process. Regular sessions are held either face-to-face, or over the telephone with action taken by the client between each session.
A NLP coach helps their client to identify what they want to achieve, whether it's in their personal, professional or public life. Once identified, the NLP coach supports their client throughout their quest to achieve their goals, helping to keep the client focused and on track and to overcome any challenges and obstacles on the way to their goal.
When NLP and coaching are applied together the effect of the experience is exponentially powerful.
Definition of a Coach
“A coach is a person who is your friend, someone who really cares about you. A coach is committed to helping you be the best you can be. A coach will challenge you, not let you off the hook. Coaches have knowledge and experience because they've been there before. They aren't any better than the people they are coaching. In fact, the people they coach may have natural abilities superior to their own. But because a coach has concentrated their power in a particular area for years, they can teach you one or two distinctions that can immediately transform your performance in a matter of moments.
Sometimes coaches can teach you new information, new strategies and skills; they show you how to get measurable results. Sometimes a coach doesn't even teach you something new, but they remind you of what you need to do at just the right moment, and they push you to do it.”
