Are you ready to maximize the value of being coached?
As a client you may say, "Am I ready to be coached?
What a silly question; I'm here aren't I?"
If only it were that simple! Unfortunately, just showing up every so often and doing some work between meetings doesn't often produce positive results.
Working with a coach is all about goals, sub goals, small success steps, self-discovery, accountability, confidence, and positive momentum. It's a commitment you make to yourself.
I've now coached so many clients that I can tell pretty quickly what'll work and what won't. Coaching works when the client (yep, that's you) shows up each week (or other week) with an open and determined mind ready to go. We both work hard for an hour, you agree on action items you'll complete by the next time. And then you come back having completed the items or open to discuss what blockage you experienced … in other words you're accountable for what you agree to do and either way you move forward and learn.
doesn't work is to regularly not complete the action items or to
until you think the tasks are completed. With the exception of
treat our appointments as very critical and do all you can to complete
action items. If action items aren't completed, you will learn most by
understanding what got in your way. If you do this, you will maximize
the coaching experience and achieve your goals much more quickly,
time, money, and lots of stress. Sound good?
To further these goals, I have set my office policies to align with the idea of effective coaching and consistent effort. Thus I expect we will agree to meet either weekly or every other week at the start of the coaching (at a later stage, the appointments can be spaced further apart). I also expect that with the exception of emergencies such as serious illness, family illnesses, or unavoidable work emergencies, you will not cancel appointments, and if you do need to cancel an appointment you will give me at least 48 hours notice. All this keeps the coaching effective and you moving in a positive direction.
So, by way of an outline, here's how successful coaching works:
