I would say coaching is a practice derived from sports which aims at developing the coachee’s potential. Coaching differs from consulting in the sense that the coach is not expected to provide solutions or solve the coachee’s problems for him/her. The coach is neither a therapist nor a psychoanalyst as the coachee is considered sane and that all questions set to him/her are turned to the future and not to the past. Coaching aims at supporting the coachee in the changes he/she decided him/herself.
