Sometimes coaches are paid by the client, not unlike students making tuition payments for continuing education. Coaching is intended to improve skills and ultimately workplace performance. As Kampa-Kokesch and Anderson noted, it is more issue focused than therapy, and it includes more types of interventions. Furthermore, coaching is typically more finite. A coaching program should last a specified amount of time and should be focused on specific work-related goals (such as improving an executive’s ability to work with a board).

The Coach’s Mandate As a Coach If the coach has been hired or asked to provide coaching by someone other than the client, then the coach will have an assignment—along with some preconceptions about the nature of the problem and expectations regarding the desired outcomes of the coaching.
