* It consists of one-to-one developmental discussions.
* It provides people with feedback on both their strengths andweaknesses.
* It is aimed at specific issues/areas.
* It is a relatively short-term activity, except in executive coaching, which tends to have a longer timeframe.
* It is essentially anon-directive form of development.
* It focuses on improving performance and developing/enhancing individuals skills.
* It is used to address a wide range of issues.
* Coaching activitieshave both organisational and individual goals.
It assumes that the individual is psychologically healthy and does not require a clinical intervention.
* It works on the premise that clients areself-aware, or can achieve self-awareness.
