The International Coach Federation (ICF) defines coaching as “a strategic partnership in which the coach empowers the client to clarify goals, create action plans, move past obstacles, and achieve what the client chooses.” The ICF publishes a table that explains how coaching competencies are evaluated including reasons credentialing may be denied. Bottom line, if someone is telling, directing, or advising, they are NOT coaching.
