Both consulting and coaching involve the use of a skilled, trained professional to assist a client in achieving goals - but each entity is considered a different form of support. Coaching involves a client who wants to grow either personally or professionally, while a coach is a trained facilitator who will guide the client. Generally, a coach works one-on-one with a client, but there are times when a group of people will work together toward a common goal.
Many times people are looking for a solution to a problem in their life. The problem may be a professional problem that is related to their job or career. Or the problem may be a personal one that is affecting the way they deal with the rest of their life. They may need to find a solution to a huge problem at work, or they may be feeling less than satisfied with the turn their life has taken. No matter why they need answers, or how they want to find those answers, there is a method and means for them to accomplish it. They simply need to decide how they want to tackle the problem.
