Professional coaching provides an ongoing partnership, via phone or e-mail sessions, designed to help clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives. Coaching helps people improve their performances and enhance the quality of their lives by eliciting solutions and strategies from the client, believing the client is naturally creative and resourceful. The coach's job is to provide support to reinforce the skills, resources, and creativity that the client already has.

The individual coaching client is someone who wants to reach one or more of the following: life and relationship satisfaction or a higher level of professional performance, creativity and learning. The coaching client takes action to move towards a goal with the support of the coach. The successful client is not excessively limited in the ability to take action or overly hesitant to make this kind of progress. Coach and client together choose the focus, format, and desired outcomes for their work. The client does not relinquish the responsibility for creating and maintaining these nor does the coach take full responsibility for them.

Coaches and clients arrange the schedule and means of contact (by phone, or via e-mail) that serve them both. The client sets the agenda for a session through a faxed or e-mailed memo. Weekly phone sessions usually last a half-hour.
