Explanation: Coaching

The term "coaching" refers to a professional process in which a coach supports a person or a group in various ways: for example, to define and achieve goals, improve performance or promote personal or professional development.

Coaching generally aims to unleash the full potential of the person being coached. Through targeted questions, reflection and support, the coach helps to create clarity, overcome obstacles and develop more effective strategies for action. Coaching is not about giving the person being coached answers - it is about empowering them to find their own answers.
