7.5 CCE Course

"Connecting With My Clients"


Through this lesson, you will learn the answers to the most frequently asked questions of new coaches as well as gain some clarity around some important coaching definitions.

What is a coach?

Being aware and understanding how the human mind functions in order to help an individual, group or professional organization achieve goals that they would not otherwise have been able to. What is the International Coaching Federation (ICF) definition of coaching?


I know you can hear me, but I want you to listen to. Those two things are not the same. The writer Paul Ferrennie said 99% of what we hear begins with what’s already in our mind. Listening comes from the heart, from the right now moment when you make a connection with the person that you’re talking to. Listening has no judgment, no expectation. Listening is a process of love.

Who am I not trained to deal with?

It is important that you note that you are not a therapist unless the laws in your state and province deem otherwise, therefore, you are not qualified to deal with clients who possess problems that you have not been trained to deal with.

As a general rule, coaching deals with the present/future and therapy deals with the pain of the past. If a client is mentally ill but is stable (and dealing with other professionals) then coaching may be beneficial to this person. This will ultimately be your decision. To protect yourself as a coach, always let your clients know what your qualifications are and have your client sign the client agreement prior to beginning your relationship. More on this topic will be covered later on in the program.
