Coaching is a useful way of developing people's skills and abilities, boosting performance or even assisting in dealing with challenges before they become major problems. Beyond consultation, training or therapy, Coaching is based on some basic principles which require among others: confidentiality and trust among the Coach and the Coachee, agreed goals for every coaching session and the faith that the solution to the Coachee’s issue lies within the Coachee. Some of the issues that can be addressed through a coaching procedure are the following:
- - How can I manage my time better to achieve all I want in my personal life or work?
- - What should I do next in my career within the organization?
- - How can I reduce the stress in my job or my life?
- - What skills do I need to grow and develop further?
- - How can I improve my relationship with a specific colleague?

- - needs investigation
