Coaching is a method of empowering another person to make a lasting life change.
Unlike counselors or advisors, coaches do not have to be subject matter experts. They are skilled in asking great questions and engaging people in any situation to define and achieve their objectives. Coaches honor the client as the expert in their life and work. The fundamental coaching philosophy is that every person is naturally creative, resourceful, and whole.

Building on this success, CNM now offers coach training courses through Unmudl, where a Certified coach trains learners to help others overcome obstacles big and small related to workforce, academic and financial goals. But what is coaching and how does it work?
Many are familiar with a therapist, a mentor or an advisor. But when it comes to a coach, outside of sports teams, many are not familiar with the concept. But a Coach, be it life, career, academic or financial, provides a different type of relationship from a counselor or therapist. With a Coach, there is a lot of asking, but very little telling. The Coach is focused on the individual being coached and not the problem.
A 2019 study conducted by the International Coaching Federation on the effectiveness of coaching showed 99% of clients interviewed saw their experiencing working with a coach as rewarding, and 96% stated they plan to continue with coaching. Coaches can help you clarify your goals, identify obstacles holding you back and help you come up with strategies for overcoming each obstacle.
