What is Coaching?

The ICF defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential, particularly important in today’s uncertain and complex work environment.


At ADLER, we see coaching as a profession that distinguishes itself by helping people discover how to bring their choices and actions more in line with their unique “best self” This, in turn, helps them to connect more creatively with a deeper human desire to make contributions for the betterment of society. Our hope and intention are to train coaches who also see their work as a creative response to this noble challenge.
