If you haven’t worked with a coach before, you need to be clear about what coaching is, what it isn’t, and what you’re hoping to get from it. It should be a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires and helps you to maximise your personal and professional potential.
It’s not just for senior executives. It’s a process that can be useful to people at any stage in their career – but especially at a time of change or challenge, at a moment of transition.
It’s a creative process, although that doesn’t mean there isn’t a structure. Typically, we’d offer a choice of coaches (and some advice on how to choose the right one for you). The first session would usually be a longer one, face-to-face. It might involve a psychometric or 360. It would definitely be all about setting objectives and expectations, agreeing how you will work with your coach. Subsequent sessions would be shorter and might well be virtual (phone, Skype, Zoom, whatever). The final session should be face-to-face if possible. There are usually six sessions in all but nothing’s set in stone – it’s your choice.
Give us a call to talk us through your thoughts so far (perhaps have a look at the sample profiles of some of our coaches, here) and we’ll nominate a few potential coaches for you.
We can answer all your questions about logistics, costs, etc.
And when you’re ready, we’ll put you in touch with the coaches so that you can have those all-important ‘chemistry’ calls.
Then let us know what you’ve decided, who you’ve chosen, and we’ll send you an agreement – but until then, you’re not at all committed.
Any questions? Give us a call – we’re here to help!
