Our Vision & other Frequently Asked Questions
What is the purpose of this web site?
Our vision at CoachCouncil.com is to help everyone realise the priceless and invaluable potential of Coaching, as we feel that there are some who don't really understand the concept of Coaching
We would like individuals as well as organizations give it a try by employing professionals and contribute to making this world a much more happier and enjoyable place to live in.
The Vision sounds cool. How does CoachCouncil.com plan to achieve this?
We sincerely believe in our hearts that Coaches can help this make our world a much happier place. We plan to spread the awareness of Coaching by providing FREE tools that offer an insight to Coaching
The free tools intend to help an individual to know themselves better. After all, in our view, that is the very foundation of any Coaching engagement.
Can automated tools really replace a Coach?
Absolutely NOT! There is no substitution for human interaction. To ascertain this, we had even tried several tools such as automated chatbots, Google's DialogueFlow, some other NLP techniques, and we finally narrowed it down to our current approach.
These tools here are intended to provide a sneak preview to what Coaching could mean, and they probably only cover 1% of what a Professionally Trained Coach can offer.
Are these tools really FREE, and will they stay FREE?
Coaching is a passion for the Founder of CoachCouncil, Venky, and has been his passion for several years now. He doesn't believe in money being the only driving factor to fuel his passion. So, yes, this web site shall stay free!
Do I need to provide my email address or other personal info?
We ask for a name for now, that's it :-). For some features, like leaving a comment on a page, emailing us, we will need your email address. Unless EXPLICITLY stated, we will not add you to any mailing list. We are NOT FOND of mailing lists at CoachCouncil.com.
In the future, some day, some tools may require a sign in because those tools may be consuming a paid for API or Service in the background. By requesting users to sign-in (at NO cost) to use these tools, we ensure that we continue to provide such free tools to only those who are serious about what we have to offer.
