If you've ever had a low tire or your alignment is off, you know that you shouldn't continue driving. When one or more of the pieces in your "wheel of life" are out of place and you are limping along, that is when it's time to call a coach.
A coach will help establish realistic goals, discover solutions to challenges you're up against, develop action plans, build self-confidence, and instill motivation to take action.
The International Coaching Federation (ICF) defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
A mentor is an expert who provides wisdom and guidance based on his or her own experience. Mentoring most often occurs between a senior and junior employee for the purpose of the mentee’s growth, and learning. Often the mentor and mentee are internal to an organization, and there is an emphasis on organizational goals, culture, and professional development.
Therapy deals with healing pain, dysfunction and conflict within an individual or in relationships. The focus is often on resolving difficulties arising from the past that hamper an individual’s emotional functioning in the present, improving overall psychological functioning, and dealing with the present in more emotionally healthy ways.
