What IS coaching?

I’d like to hear some opinions on this one…

I worked with a new coach today.  He couldn’t figure out what to do with me.  I didn’t have a problem.  I was excited with a new possibility in my business and that didn’t fit his paradigm of coaching.  Oops.

I teach MBA students and one thought that coaching was any time he asked a question of an employee.  Another thought it was a term her company used to make bad things sound compassionate (”We are going to coach some people out of the business….”)

So what is coaching to you?
