What do you think is typical (special) about one-to-one coaching in your country when compared with coaching in other countries (that coaches from abroad should be aware of when having clients in your country)? <ul><li>Estonia: The fact that coaching is not yet a widely developed field of activity in business requires a lot of client education. </li></ul><ul><li>Latvia: Information on coaching in Latvia is not widely available. Also, by those who heard of it, the coaching concept is not yet completely comprehended. Therefore, many clients confuse one-to-one coaching with consulting and expect to receive concrete advice and recommendations. </li></ul><ul><li>Poland: We only have few coaches for top business people. </li></ul><ul><li>Lithuania: Clients do not understand what coaching is and how to choose a good coach. Because of this, many consultants start to work as coach, without special coach education. </li></ul>
