Coaching is encouragement.  Coaching is preparing someone to be their best self in a given task.  Coaching is providing resources necessary to take someone to the ‘next level’ of accomplishment.  As with any coach, sports or otherwise, ETC meets with individuals in consultation to listen, to assess the challenge(s), and to recommend solution(s).  The solution(s) may be to instruct, and/or to find resources that resolve the issue, and/or to simply provide guidance. 

Coaching Defined: Challenges

What is meant by "COACHING"

Coach Poole’s favorite quote is Marianne Williamson’s “Our Deepest Fear”, which is her life mantra shared with young people:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure!”
