    • found: Thorne, K. Personal coaching : releasing potential at work, 2001 ("Personal coaching ... is a special one-to-one relationship built to support individuals as they make choices about their life and work. In the same way that a personal trainer would work with you to tone your body, personal coaching works with your mind and spirit. Personal coaches encourage you to step outside your day-to-day routine - they help you to explore the boundaries of your learning and support and challenge you at times of decision. They can be sounding boards, mentors and friends ... Personal coaching could be described as enabling - supporting another individual to achieve their personal goals. Within this context it uses a skill set that is similar to mentoring, or counselling.")
