Lesson 1: INTRODUCTION TO COACHING

Etymologically, the English term “coach” is derived from a medium of transport that traces its origins to the Hungarian word kocsi meaning “carriage” that was named after the village where it was first made. The first use of the term coaching to mean an instructor or trainer arose around 1830 in Oxford University slang for a tutor who "carries" a student through an exam. Coaching thus has been used in language to describe the process used to transport people from where they are, to where they want to be. The first use of the term in relation to sports came in 1861.

Lesson 2: THE POWER OF VISUALIZATION

Visualization is a technique that has been in use for many years, but it only started to come to the attention of popular media in the 1970s and 1980s. Since that time, its use has expanded to all areas of life. Athletes like Jack Nicklaus use it to excel in their sports. Actors like Will Smith use it to imagine success not yet achieved. On a less grand level, people use visualization to see and achieve goals such as planning the perfect wedding or acing an interview.

Lesson 3: COACH – CLIENT RELATIONSHIPS

The single factor most vital to successful outcomes in executive coaching is the quality of the relationship between coach and client. In her article in this series last month, Ina Smith stressed that executive coaching is quite different from ‘training coaching’ that focuses on the development of skills or knowledge. What, then, can the executive coach offer? What can a client reasonably expect of his coach, and what skills or knowledge should the coach have in order to secure the best possible outcome for his client? Ina has already identified many of these. However, even the coach with the best “kitbag” of skills, knowledge and business experience will not procure the best outcome for his client unless he is able to establish and build a good relationship.

Lesson 4: LIFE COACHING & PERSONAL COACHING

Personal coaching or 'life coaching' as it is commonly described and promoted is a quite recent area of learning and development. Life coaching can be effective in many situations, for example in helping a person's career direction and development, or for personal fulfillment or life change more generally. Life coaching, or becoming a personal coach is also a career opportunity in itself that interests many people from a wide variety of backgrounds. In recent years a big industry has grown under the heading of 'life coaching'. For this reason the term 'life coaching' appears widely in related marketing and publicity, which can create a perception that 'life coaching' is in some way quite different from other forms of personal coaching.

Lesson 9: THE POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING

Many people say things like, "I try to think positive, but I am overwhelmed by negativity." Many people have concluded that either positive thinking doesn't work, or they are somehow not trying hard enough.The fact is, positive thinking can be a very effective tool in the right circumstances, but it has to be done the right way and at the right time. But before I get into that, I want to get off on the right foot and say it is best to consider positive thinking as self-coaching. It's a more accurate description of what you're trying to do, and it is the name researchers use when they try to determine if self-coaching makes any difference. And they've discovered it does.
