What is Coaching?

Coaching is a creative and thought-provoking partnership to maximise the clients’ personal and professional potential.  The role of the coach is to provide skilled presence to listen powerfully, create absolute clarity, structure the conversation, maintain unwavering focus on goals, inspire an action plan, and agree firm accountabilities to empower the client in accomplishing the goal.  This involves a process of deep discovery that is proven to be powerful in delivering meaningful and lifelong change.

  • Avni is a natural at coach training. Right throughout the training Avni had the ability to make us deeply introspect and grow, through practice coaching and feedback, and by holding up a mirror for us to be the best versions of ourselves. Avni's training sessions were highly engaging with a good mix of theory, discussions, practice and reflections. Our cohort interacted very well with each other and Avni was instrumental in ensuring each of us became clearer in addressing our developmental needs as coaches. Avni has helped me make the transition into thinking more deeply about my role as a coach and has inspired me in my coaching journey.

Avni is a masterful coach, and trainer and she has the unique ability to give feedback to peer coaching sessions that is concise, actionable and provided with so much positive energy that we all grew from session to session. As all the participants were already practising coaches, Avni flexibly adjusted the training to meet the needs of the group. She used training materials, lots of peer coaching sessions, a variety of exercises, reviewed the ICF Coaching Competencies at Master Certified Coach (MCC) level, and last but not least provided access to MCC coaching sessions, which provided invaluable opportunity for us to develop our coaching skills.
