Coaching is a powerful relationship that assists individuals and organizations in designing their future by clarifying and focusing on their unique gifts and calling. Coaching creates goals and strategies to achieve a desired future. Coaching both develops the whole person/team and accomplishes the results they are aiming to achieve. Experience shows that coaching students not only learn to help others, but have huge, transformational learning themselves.
