Coaching Quotes

“Coaching simply speeds up a process of change that would most likely occur anyway if an individual had enough time. Without a coaching program that forces a client to focus and make time, people sometimes miss the real issues they need to focus on.” – The Ivy Business Journal, September-October 2000

“People who are coaches will be the norm. Other people won’t get promoted.” – Jack Welch, CEO, General Electric

  1. Hi Shalini!

    I appreciate the quotes you’ve shared with us. No coach in the world could get us to do what we ourselves are not capable of doing. But we are all capable of so much!

    One small point if I may…The Ivy Business Journal uses the word “forces” and I like to think of it as guiding or reminding or simply focusing. “Forces” feels like it’s putting someone else in control. What do you think? I’d love to know your thoughts on this. 🙂

  2. Thanks for your comment Ronnie.
    The point which you raised about `forces ` is that coaching is a relationship which creates accountability wherein the client commits to certain action steps he/she would take in view of the goals they want to achieve.
    This word force here does not have a negative connotation to it here and certainly does not imply putting someone else in control.

  3. Thank you for your thoughts on that point. I brought it up because people sometimes think they need “forcing” in that other way. And also because words sometimes live outside their intended meaning. But in truth, as you say, the commitment from them, aided by their “contract” & relationship with their coach, is the real power.

    Appreciate the discussion!
