Life and Performance Coaching
The Origins of Coaching
The word “coach” referring to a person is said to originate in an academic context, at the University of Oxford in the 1830s. In this case, the word “coach” was used to refer to a tutor who supported a student with his or her academic work.
It is believed that it was initially implied that a tutor would take a student from point A where they were stuck and unable to pass an exam to a point B where they were unstuck and he/she had developed the skillset in order to pass the exam—much like a coach.
Today, coaching is very popular. Coaching really is a partnership between a coach and a coachee. A coach provides a trusted space to explore a coachee’s goals and aspirations. Through active listening, effective questioning, use of coaching tools and models, a space for development and growth is created. Together strategies are created to assist the coachee flourish on their own authentic path in
Coaching is: “unlocking people’s potential to maximise their performance”.
Sir John Whitemore.
