I recently came across a great quotation, “Successful People work on the skill set and don’t rely on their talent”. This is directly linked to coaching because in order to truly work on our skill set, we need to be both driven, and self-aware. These are two key elements that coaching clients have in abundance. The quotation is founded on the principle that we can improve continuously if we have the desire to do so. The self-awareness facilitates the desire. For people who are already on that journey, effective coaching can be an “accelerator”. For those that have a sense that working on their skill set is what they need to do, then coaching  can be an “enabler”.
