But this raises an important issue: How is coaching different from therapy? In chapter 1, as we discuss the contexts of coaching, we also address this thorny question. In chapter 2, we describe an effective process for understanding clients’ expectations about coaching and then negotiating a set of shared expectations. To coach adaptively, you have to be transparent about how the coaching will occur, what you will focus on, how you will help clients, and so on. Surfacing their preferences and changing your approach accordingly is obviously a crucial part of being an adaptive coach.

As Kampa-Kokesch and Anderson noted, it is more issue focused than therapy, and it includes more types of interventions. Furthermore, coaching is typically more finite. A coaching program should last a specified amount of time and should be focused on specific work-related goals (such as improving an executive’s ability to work with a board). A coaching contract, or action plan, is typically formulated quite early in the relationship, often by the end of the first or second meeting. This plan serves as the measure against which to assess progress.
