I look at each client engagement as a partnership with the goal of assisting my client to reach their goals. Like any coach, my goal is not to instruct my clients what to do but to give them the tools and support needed for them to achieve their best.
I use a variety of methods and tools, each customized to the client's needs and the desired outcome. All of the tools that I use are based on scientific methods proven by research. This approach is called Evidence Based Coaching.
Evidence Based Coaching
The technical definition: Evidence-Based Coaching is a scientific approach whereby professional practice is capable of being justified in terms of sound evidence based upon a process of methodical clinical and industry research, evaluation, and the use of up-to-date systematic research findings to support decisions about practice. Evidence based coaching links theories and research from the behavioral sciences eg; psychology with coaching best-practice. Evidence-based coaching is a way of distinguishing professional practice grounded in proven science versus the simplistic, unproven coaching approach popularized by the many coaching associations and coach training providers engaged in mass-marketing to a primarily uneducated marketplace.
Evidence based coaching with industry best practice invalidates previously accepted approaches and replaces them with new ones that are more powerful, more accurate, more efficacious, and safer.
Evidence based coaching allows the practitioner to provide his/her client more effective and accurate assessment, more informed program planning and selection of the appropriate coaching technology.
