How is coaching done?
Typically, individual coaching is done by telephone, for four ½-hour sessions each month. To create profound changes in your life, we ask for a three-month commitment.
Is coaching therapy?
No, coaching is not therapy. You will find that coaching focuses on strategic planning and personal growth and does not attempt to heal emotional trauma. Coaches regularly refer clients to other professionals for issues that are better suited to a therapeutic relationship.
What is a typical session like?
The hallmark of coaching is self-responsibility. The client sets the agenda for the call and the coach follows that agenda. You can expect powerful and clarifying questions, focused and fine-tuned planning tools, and accountability. As your coach, I’ll have high expectations of you and support you thoroughly.
What does it cost to hire a coach?
The charge for coaching is $X per month for four ½-hour calls per month. Some clients work with a coach for an hour or two a week, which increases the fee. Your check is due on the first of each month. If it makes it any easier, you can pay by Visa or MasterCard.
Your coaching fee is an investment that pays big dividends. If you’re like most people, money is available for the things you really want or need. Are you cautious about spending money and concerned about making intelligent choices? Here are three things you can do to maximize your investment:
Hire the right coach. Find the coach whose specialties best match your needs.
During your first coaching session, set a 90-day goal that’s worth accomplishing. Make sure the goal is something that’s worth the coaching fee, something you’d be happy to pay for.
Make the most of your coaching time. Tell your coach what results you want and your coach helps you make it happen.
