What’s the difference between coaching and consulting?
A consultant is an expert in a given field that provides advice based on their own training, knowledge and experience. Coaching sees you, the client as creative, intelligent and resourceful. It draws upon the belief that the greatest expert on your life and your business is YOU and that all the answers you seek are within you, waiting to be discovered. We see the power of both coaching and consulting and typically provide our clients with a mixture of coaching and consulting services. You get the benefits of our experience while also having the opportunity to tap into your own potential.
