Most people need a quick intro. Coaching is different from counseling or mentoring, with its own models, process, techniques and masteries. In a nutshell, coaching helps you clarify where you are now, where you want to be, how to get there, and overcome what stands in the way.

♥ The Profession and Practice

"A true profession has a body of knowledge, certification, research and a code of ethics. Coaching is a growing service profession. I deliver the highest quality service according to the International Association of Coaching certification, IAC Coaching Masteries, and code of ethics." (see the  IAC Ethical Principles) -Coach RJ 

In addition to coaching training, coaches often acquire additional training that informs their practice; however a certified coach adheres to distinct coaching models, methods, practices. Coaches incorporate other skills and training. For example, RJ received training from:
