So, what is Transformational Coaching?

ICF defines professional coaching as

… partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Coaches honor the client as the expert in his or her life and work and believe every client is creative, resourceful and whole.

According to CMA

The coaching process helps clients dramatically improve their outlook on work and life while improving their leadership skills and unlocking their potential.

Coaching clarifies and inspires intention. It focuses on strengths-based action. It is holistic and extraordinary in how it embraces the ineffable. These attributes, which characterize and help structure an understanding of coaching, all aim to make sure clients know they can create the change they want. The promise of coaching is that we are partnering for a thought-provoking and creative exchange that allows a client to do something different, both personally and professionally. 

Transformational Coaching with ViVoVibes

There is a little bit of confusion about coaching out there mostly with the amount of adjectives used before the word coaching. In this case, why transformational coaching? As the word itself describes, transformation means not only a change, it means the death of something in order to make room for something else completely new. Is a kind of metamorphosis occurring within a process of self discovery.

We describe this as a transformative shift, an AHA moment the client experiences when his/her perception changes. But, what is actually the meaning of perception? 

Perception is the way we experience the world according to our own filters. Most of those filters are created in childhood by the family, culture, religion and other factors. This is how our belief system is created and it’s from here where we perceive the world.

Transformational coaching pretends to create a shift in the perception, a whole new way to see or experience the problem or situation. We encourage a learning process where the client is the main character. It’s a process of self understanding where the coach leads the client to uncover his/her own potential by removing the layers recognized as limiting beliefs.
