1. What is coaching?
Coaching is a journey which moves an individual to a better place with possibilities they don’t see. Coaching helps you achieve your personal and professional goals by asking thought provoking questions and support through various research-based tools and assessments.
2. What does SherlockSuperCoach.AI ™, the coaching platform do for me?
Sherlock leverages targeted & thought-provoking questioning techniques to stimulate user’s self-reflection, making possible action visible again and promoting solution-oriented thinking.
Sherlock does it through insightful personal conversations, stories and effective tools. The starting point for Sherlock is to understand your preferred thinking patterns. Then it leverages that information for your ultimate success. Sherlock’s approach is based on decades of research on coaching, Whole Brain theory, neuroscience and positive psychology.
3. How different is app coaching from human coaching? Would sherlock give me access to a human coach?
First and foremost – SherlockSuperCoach.AI ™ is available to you 24*7 whenever you need it. Sherlock has made coaching accessible to hundreds and thousands of junior and mid management people who never had access to a coach but always needed one. Sherlock doesn’t intend to replace your manager but rather compliment him/her/It. There is no human involved in the entire coaching platform.
Sherlock is built on systemic principles to ensure you reflect, have insights, come up with thoughtful actions which are tracked to closure. Sherlock also has an in-built nudging system and check-in system to help you draw insights and keep you true to your goals.
Since Sherlock is a Whole Brain coach, it will send you notifications based on your thinking preferences as well which is tough for humans to do.
4. How different is a coaching app from a mental health therapy app?
Coaching is different from therapy. Although Sherlock helps you remain in a resourceful mental and emotional state, it is not a therapy app and should not be used by people who are seeking mental health support.
Mental health refers to a wide range of disorders that affect mood, thinking and behavior. If someone is going through a mental health issue, they can experience distress and problems functioning at home or at work. The user should then contact a therapist. It is not something one can overcome with the help of a coach as the causes can be biological.
