HOW I COACH
Each coaching relationship is, by its nature, unique and customized
to the individual. Therefore, you will in large measure, determine
the process yourself. With that said, it may be helpful to understand
what my clients can expect of me and what I expect of my clients.
Coaching relationships typically begin with a complimentary discovery
session to introduce us to each other, and to discuss what you want,
and how you're going to proceed to get it. The process continues
with weekly coaching sessions, which enable you to stay on track
to fulfill your goals and dreams, to maintain the momentum of your
change, and to integrate the success you are currently achieving.
I Expect Your Best
By choosing to work with me, you're probably ready to do and to
be your best. And if you aren't being or doing your best, we'll
discover together what's holding you back. I'll understand and support
your need to be heard and assisted back onto your path.
I Make Direct Requests
From time to time, I'll make a direct request, like "Will you accomplish
X by the end of the month?" You may accept the request, counter-offer
(state what you can do), or decline (rare). I'll support you whichever
way you respond.
I Give Straight Advice
When I'm sure of the situation, and you're open to it, I'll make
specific suggestions on how to handle a problem or "go-for" an opportunity.
If I'm not sure, I'll say so. Honesty is one of my values - I'm
straightforward and expect the same from you. Regardless, I expect
you to use the best of what I say and always use your own intuition
I Encourage Goal Work
I'll usually ask you to come up with two or three goals, actions,
or breakthroughs to have between one session and the next. If it
is too much, say so. If you want more, just ask.
I Encourage Things to Happen on Time
I expect that we will stick to our pre-arranged coaching schedule
and our agreement regarding my fees, unless other arrangements are
made. I also encourage you to be spontaneous. If you are just starting
to realize something big and can't wait to share a breakthrough,
or ask a question, call or e-mail me, anytime. I want to share in
your joys and triumphs! Therefore, I accept your important phone
calls (5-10 min. limit) or e-mails at no charge.
