The International Federation of Coaching defines professional
and life coaching as "an ongoing professional relationship that helps people produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses, or organizations. Through the process of
coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their performance and enhance their quality of life."
The coaching relationship is one that elicits solutions and strategies from the client, who is creative, resourceful and whole and the expert on his or her life. Coaching assists people in gaining clarity about their goals, dreams and passions and helps them to work through barriers, face their fears and develop a plan to meet their goals. Lynn encourages self-discovery and holds clients accountable to their dreams. People hire coaches because they want more satisfaction out of life and they want to live life by design, not default.
Coaching can assist people in dealing with transitions, such as marriage, divorce, parenthood, launching children, career changes and retirement. It can focus on relationships with family and friends, significant others and children. It can focus on any area of life, including but not limited to finances, spirituality, health, career, physical environment and/or fun and recreation.
