This came up when someone asked me how I would coach someone from a personal development point of view.  What was interesting to me is that in reality, we all already have what we need to be able to take ourselves to the other side of an issue, it’s just that we don’t remember HOW anymore.  The key is not to become dependent upon outside people/things to do that process for us, but to get connected with the tools that can support us in being able to do that for ourselves so we can begin to remember to HOW.  The tools that would be most supportive would be tools that we could incorporate into our daily lives and be something we would use without thinking.

Anyway, I feel the goal of coaching is to coach the person into being their own coach.
