What is coaching?
Coaching is an interactive process that helps individuals and organizations to develop more rapidly and produce more satisfying results. Coaches work with clients in many areas, including business and career.   As a result of coaching, clients set better goals, take more action, make better decisions, and more fully use their natural strengths.

How does coaching work?
Professional coaches are trained to listen and observe, to customize their approach to the individual client’s needs, and to elicit strategies and solutions from clients.  The O’Toole Firm believes that clients are naturally creative and resourceful, and that the coach’s job is to provide support to enhance their skills, resources, and creativity. While coaches provide feedback and an objective perspective, clients are responsible for taking the necessary steps to produce the results they desire.
