How coaching works
The first time we talk, we get to know one another with the purpose of determining whether we want to establish a coaching relationship. In this free, introductory session, we will explore the coaching topic and what you would like to get from coaching. I ask questions to get to know you, and to get an idea of your impediments, what support you will need, what expectations you have, what you have tried, and what you might not be seeing about yourself.
Should we decide to work together, I will create a personal development plan that includes my assessment of you and where you stand in relation to the coaching topic. The plan can include practices, exercises, support and resources designed to: open possibilities of being in your life, help you access your essential strengths, and increase awareness and consciousness of what holds you back or moves you forward. We design this plan together, deciding on its structure, including how long it will take, what I will ask of you, what you can expect from me, how we will decide if the plan is working, what you can expect to experience as coaching progresses, and what support looks like.
For however long as agreed upon, we meet on a regular basis, with the intention of reviewing the plan, the progress you are making, whether you are experiencing blocks and how to move through them, and what kinds of support or insights you might need to take action. Check-ins between sessions are available.
To wrap up, we acknowledge the progress you made, we identify what continual practice or improvement looks like, discuss your commitment to your continuing growth, and address future potential interruptions in progress and how to deal with them.
Coaching is never done. There will always be areas in our life that can be improved, that can be even better than they are today. My commitment as your coach is to be available as a resource and to help you to be the best you that you can be.
