Coaching is defined as “Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential” by International Coaching Federation (ICF). It is a partnership between coach and client that aims to achieve the client's personal best and to produce the results they want in their personal and professional lives. Coaching believes that every individual has answers to their own questions within themselves. Therefore, during the coaching process coach plays a role to discover and clarify what the client wants to achieve and bring out client-generated solutions by asking the right self-discovery questions at the right time. Coaching is not teaching. Instead, the coach acts more like a facilitator of learning and helps clients to learn. That way coaching can lead to permanent improvement in their personal and professional lives.
Positive Psychology is the scientific study of the strengths that enable individuals and communities to thrive. The field of positive psychology is founded on the belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to cultivate what is best within themselves, and to enhance their experiences of love, work, and play. It arose at the end of the 20th century, when psychologists like Martin Seligman and others began developing ways of studying various aspects of positive human experience and positive human functioning scientifically. Instead of relying merely on introspection or on case studies, researchers began using rigorous empirical methods of inquiry to study the experiences, judgements, and behaviours of large numbers of people.
Positive Psychology in Coaching uses a model that works to identify and build on the client’s strengths, seeks to engender hope and happiness, broadens access to the person’s intellectual and psychological resources, resulting in improved performance. Positive coaching model can be utilised to better achieve specific goals while aiming to achieve enhancement in life balance. The field of work includes, but not limited to, changing perceptions, dysfunctional beliefs & behaviours that are limiting to reach one’s potential, optimizing work performance, improving communication skills, increasing productivity, expanding career opportunities, increasing self-confidence, managing work/life balance.
