About Coaching

Coaching a quick definition:

“Coaching, as defined by the International Coaching Federation, is a partnership between the Coach and the Client. The goal is to engage in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the client to maximize personal and professional potential.” 

There are many definitions for what coaching is all about. 
Naím Coaching we believe coaching provides a unique opportunity to focus and move forward on your personal, professional or organizational goals through the exploration of ideas and candid dialogue with a confidential and unbiased thinking partner.

A coach achieves this by:
