What is Coaching?

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Clarity provides coaching and faciliation to Leaders, Business Executives, and Entrepreneurs in a variety of organizations. 

According to the International Coach Federation:

"Coaching is an interactive process that helps individuals and organizations to develop more rapidly and produce more satisfying results.  Coaches work with clients in all areas including business, career, finances, health and relationships.  As a result, clients set better goals, take more action, make better decisions, and more fully use their natural strengths.

Professional coaches are trained to listen and observe, to customize their approach to the individual client's needs, and to elicit solutions and strategies from the client.  They believe that the client is naturally creative and resourceful and that the coach's job is to provide support to enhance the skills, resources, and creativity that the client already has.  While the coach provides feedback and an objective perspective, the client is responsible for taking the steps to produce the results he or she desires.  Coaching does not focus on relieving psychological pain or treating cognitive or emotional disorders."

"Coaching is the second fastest growing profession in the world, rivaled only by Information Technology."

Coaching Testimonial:

Genevieve Hladysh

Senior Regional Manager Health Fitness and Aquatics, The YMCA of Hamilton/Burlington/Brantford

“I have now had the opportunity to work with Wendy in a group setting as well as in one on one coaching environment. The time has been extremely well spent and I walked away from each session have learned something as well as been provided the opportunity to self reflect and problem solve. The tools that Wendy provides are easy to use and implement and don't require a lot of additonal work on my part. In one situation, I had a work issue that Wendy was able to work through with me over the phone and we reviewed a tool that helped to frame an approach that I was comfortable with. The outcome was successful. Being able to have a coach that can work through strategies with you in a confidential and neutral environment was extremely beneficial. I am grateful my employer believed in the coaching model and invested this time in me to help me to grow as a leader.”
