Professional Coaching

With Reinventing Carrière coaching

Definition of coaching

ICF (International Coaching Federation), the biggest worldwide organization of professional coach, defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.

In practice, we can describe coaching as a supporting system, oriented towards action and solution, which aims for mesurable results in a predefined period. Coaching is different from consulting, counseling and training/courses – its purpose is not to provide a solution, nor to heal mental wounds linked to personal history, nor to teach textbook knowledge. The client, who can be an individual or a group, is supported in elaborating aloud on his/her subject, to clarify his/her objective and to find his/her own solutions.

The role of coach

A Coach is a “process expert” and the master of the coaching framework. He/she understands the core of the client’s professional subjects without being an expert in the client’s specialized domain. A Coach considers the client to be a partner, and in this partnership, the client is the only one responsible for his/her own objective and decisions.

The role of a Coach is to support the client to

  • clarify his/her objective,
  • identify his/her motivations and competencies,
  • explore his/her resources and expand his/her options,
  • commit himself/herself to his/her action plan and progress.

In this fast-moving world, the future becomes less and less predictable and everyone needs to adapt to constant changes. This is especially true for international managers who work in a multicultural environment under the pressure of globalization.

A Coach is the best partner on the path towards professional evolution, who supports clients with inspiration, discernment and feedback to more quickly achieve results and to continue to grow.

We cannot teach people anything;
we can only help them discover it within themselves. 
— Galileo Galilei

The elements below are non-rigid principles of our practice and services:

Progress through live sessions

Through active dialogue between the client and his/her coach, the client can clarify his/her request and situation in order to build his/her visor, and discover solutions.

Expansion of the frame of reference
The self-awareness through the interaction and the relationship that the client builds with his/her coach allows him/her to broaden his/her “frame of reference,” and to find the key elements of his/her subject. Thus, over the coaching sessions, the client reaches a new point of view regarding his/her professional context and relationships, and becomes able to adopt new behaviors.

➭ CMI™ Coaching Method which focuses on the alignment of the 3 identities

Alignment

The choice of being supported by a coach actually means to work on oneself, with a goal of growing more autonomously. Reinventing Carrière Coaching is particularly interested in the alignment between the client’s internal assets and external environment, by promoting his/her confidence development, motivation, and commitment in order to achieve his/her objective.

Relationship of confidence, confidentiality, and non-judgement

The coach, Kyria, is committed to building a climate based on trust and mutual respect, and to keep the utmost confidentiality concerning the information about the clients and their companies.

Sessions and process

The location, duration and process of the sessions can vary, depending on the objective and what seems most effective for the client. For each mission, the operational details are defined by a “Coaching Contract,” signed with client’s agreement after the initial “Exploring Session.”

CONSULTANT OR COACH ?
Both respond to a precise need of a client, but they intervene in very different ways !
A Consultant has mastery of a knowledge or a method in the client’s professional domain. The client benefits directly from the solution and suggestions provided by the consultant.
A Coach is a “process expert,” regardless the professional domain of the client. Being coached, the client works on his current situation to explore and construct the future. A Coach uses his expert coaching skills to evoke clients’ self-awareness and make clients more autonomous and responsible towards their actions.
THERAPIST OR COACH ?
Both work with their clients in a relationship of confidence, confidentiality, and non-judgement. But a Coach doesn’t intervene like a Therapist.
The goal of coaching is not to heal mental wounds linked to personal histories, but to focus on the curent problems to find solutions while building up the future. It is important that a coaching client has the necessary motivation and capacity regarding the subject that he wants to work on (for exemple, a burned-out client should see a counselor but not a coach).
COST OF COACHING ?
It depends on several factors: the type of coaching, the number of sessions, the duration of each session, and the coach that you choose. In fact, the most important factor to consider is your objective, in order to choose the coach and the program that best suits your needs. Like many other good coaches, I offer a free “Exploring Session.” This first exchange can immediately help you to clarify your situation, and to give you an idea of suitable type of coaching and number of sessions. In particular, you will “feel” if we can work together with confidence.
