Coaching vs. Consulting
Would you rather I teach you to be a master gardener, where you could grow any plants you want, and sustain your own food supply- Or- Would you rather I give you a sandwich?
The answer to this question has everything to do with how hungry you are. If you’re starving, you might just opt for the sandwich- the quick grab. But if you’re in a state of curiosity, openness and eagerness to self-sustain, you probably want to learn all about farming!
Coaching and Consulting serve similar functions- to get you “fed”—with knowledge. Consulting, however, is simply the delivery of this information, whereas coaching encourages you to find the answers yourself. Coaching, therefore, is a much more challenging and empowering journey, with lasting results.
