What is coaching?

Coaching is a process in which the coach (trainer) helps the client (coachee) achieve specific goals, develop skills, identify and overcome limitations and improve the quality of life. It is an interactive and focused process that aims to support the individual in his or her personal or professional development.

How does coaching differ from other forms of consulting?

Coaching is different from traditional forms of teaching or consulting. In coaching, the coach does not provide direct advice or solutions, but rather asks questions and helps the client discover their own answers, goals and strategies. This process focuses on increasing self-awareness, developing potential, improving self-management skills and achieving specific results.

Coaching can take many forms, covering areas such as personal life, professional career, health and interpersonal relationships. Specializations such as executive coaching, which focuses on developing leadership skills in a business context, are also popular.

An important element of coaching is trust and an open, partnership relationship between the coach and the client. The art of coaching involves skillful listening, asking good questions and supporting the client in the process of self-development.

Mentoring is a relationship in which a more experienced and more professionally mature mentor provides support, guidance, and shares his or her experience and knowledge with a less experienced mentee (student, mentee). It is a long-term process in which the mentor serves as a guide and inspirer, helping the mentee achieve professional, personal or educational goals.

Unlike coaching, mentoring often involves a more formal or long-term relationship in which the mentor serves as a mentor for an extended period of time. During this time, the mentor can provide support in career development, career advice, sharing industry knowledge, and helping you develop soft skills and self-management.

Mentoring can take many forms, including workplace mentoring programs where organizations offer structured mentoring relationships between employees at different levels of work experience. Mentoring can also take place in a social or educational format, for example through mentoring programs at educational institutions.

An important element of mentoring is the transfer of knowledge, experience and values between professional generations, which may contribute to better preparation of young professionals for the requirements of their field of work.

Life coaching is a form of coaching that focuses on areas related to personal life, personal development and achieving life goals. A life coach supports clients in identifying their values, setting goals, developing skills in coping with life difficulties and achieving harmony between various areas of life.

Life coaching can cover various aspects, such as professional career, personal relationships, health, personal development or achieving work-life balance. A life coach helps the client define what changes he wants to make in his life and supports him in developing an action plan to achieve these goals.

During a life coaching session, the coach may use various techniques, such as asking questions, conducting reflection exercises, analyzing the client's strengths and obstacles that hold him back. The goal is to create motivation and a clear path of action for the client.

Life coaching is focused on the present and the future, with an emphasis on action and achieving specific results. While a coach may support a client in dealing with past experiences, the primary goal is to focus on the client's growth and future life directions.

Business coaching is a form of coaching focused on business and professional areas. It covers various areas aimed at developing leadership skills, improving professional effectiveness and supporting organizational development. Here are some key areas that business coaching can cover:

Business coaching adapts to the client's specific needs and may cover a variety of areas depending on the client's organizational situation and professional goals. It is an interactive process in which the coach supports the client in identifying goals, developing action plans and achieving intended business results.

Career coaching is a form of coaching focused on the area of professional development and career planning. It is a process in which the coach helps the client define professional goals, develop skills, identify professional values, and make decisions about a career path. Career coaching can be addressed both to people who want to develop in their current career and to those who plan to change their career path.

Working in career coaching involves several key aspects:

Working in career coaching requires the ability to listen, ask good questions, build trust and support the client in the process of independently discovering and shaping his or her career path. A career coach does not provide ready-made solutions, but creates conditions for the client's self-reflection and self-development, helping him achieve professional success in accordance with his own goals and values.

Succession coaching is a form of coaching that focuses on preparing management staff and key employees to take on new roles or responsibilities in the organization in the context of staff succession. Staff succession refers to the process of identifying, developing and preparing employees to take over key functions in an organization, especially management positions, as current leaders leave. As part of succession coaching, the coach supports employees who are potential successors in developing the skills necessary to effectively perform new roles or functions. Key elements of succession coaching may include:

Succession coaching aims to minimize the risk of losing key competencies in the organization as a result of the departure of experienced employees and to secure future organizational success through appropriate preparation of successors. It is a strategic approach to human resources management that helps build a lasting base of leaders in the organization.

Crisis coaching is a form of coaching focused on supporting clients in dealing with crisis situations, both in their professional and personal lives. Crises can take many forms, such as job loss, relationship difficulties, health problems, loss of loved ones, or other situations that significantly affect the well-being and functioning of an individual.

Working in crisis coaching requires exceptional sensitivity, empathy and client focus. A crisis coach is not a therapist, but he or she can help the client find effective strategies for coping with difficulties, build inner strength and return to mental health and normal functioning after going through a crisis.

In our work, we use the elements and knowledge acquired in the TSR Solution-Focused Therapy school as well as knowledge in the area of schema therapy and CBT.

Mentoring sessions are meetings between a mentor and a mentee that serve to transfer experience, knowledge and support in the professional or personal development of the mentee. A mentor is a more experienced person who shares their experiences, advice and skills with a mentee, i.e. a person who is less experienced or is at a specific point in development. Here are some key elements of mentoring sessions:
Mentoring sessions are flexible and tailored to the individual needs of the mentee. The key is to build an open, trusted relationship that enables the free exchange of information and effective support for the mentee's development.
