We can broadly define 7 Areas of Life – Career, Family, Mental, Health, Social, Spiritual & Financial.
Coaches do believe that their clients are resourceful and the coach `s role is to allow the client to
enhance their own skills , resources and natural creativity. By using effective coaching skills ,work
in partnership with their clients on a voyage of self discovery of strategies & solutions to achieving
their dreams , aspiration and goals.

speak kindly with depth.
