Coaching vs. Consulting

Our approach to coaching is very much in keeping with the International Coaching Federation's description outlined below.

Coaching

"As coaches, we partner with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Professional coaches provide an ongoing partnership designed to help clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives. Coaches help people improve their performances and enhance the quality of their lives." — www.coachfederaton.rg

Consulting

Our approach as consultants is to lend expertise as advisors on management issues related to change, leadership, capacity building, and organizational improvement. We are committed to helping you become more effective strategists, leaders, and problem-solvers.

Why use the services of Icatalyst Consulting and Coaching?

Our consultants serve as insightful, unbiased advisors and resources, and can assist your organization, or business to evaluate products, programs or services against mission, vision, strategies, relationships, group norms, attitudes, perceptions, processes, leadership capabilities and communication. We help you answer the question “Does going in this direction make sense at this time? What kind of resources do we need and what type of internal and external work do we need to do, if we were to move in a new direction? What are the costs and benefits of doing nothing? We create and hold the space you need, without judgment that allows you to arrive at the best decisions for your organization.

One executive coaching client’s experience frames it thusly,

“When you hold the top position anywhere, it’s not always easy to share your thoughts and unfinished ideas with the people around you. Gisele, you have a way of synthesizing the information I share with you that allows me to clarify my thoughts, and strengthen my voice and my vision. I go back to my responsibilities feeling more self-assured of my direction. Thanks.” – Margot M.

“Our work together led me to powerful insights I did not have before. Thank you.” – Gardner G.
