What Is Coaching?

Coaching is a powerful tool for personal and professional growth, enabling individuals to enhance their performance by recognising and developing their unique capabilities, strengths and resources. It goes beyond a simple support system; it's like dropping a pebble into a pool of thoughts, creating a wave of profound thinking.

Coaching differs from talking things through with a friend who might be tempted to exercise their ‘advice monster’ telling you what to do and it differs from thinking things through for yourself where you might be tempted to stop when it gets a bit ‘sticky’. Instead, a coach can provide uninterrupted presence and attention, where you and your ideas take centre stage.

The quality of your attention determines the quality of other people's thinking.

In our fast-paced lives, we often get caught up in the daily grind, focusing on 'doing things right' instead of 'doing the right things'. This is where coaching comes in. At Double Loop Coaching, we believe in being 'thoughts partners', providing a safe and confidential space for our clients to engage in their best thinking and become the best version of themselves.

Through silence, incisive questions and an appreciative lens, we guide our clients to reflect on their challenges and objectives and the energy around these. We support them to gain perspective, achieve clarity and a renewed sense of purpose, and develop actionable plans to ensure growth. Coaching empowers individuals to break free from limiting assumptions and embrace their unique talents, unlocking their full potential for lasting transformation.
