How would we work together?
The structure and length of a coaching program can vary, but typically will last from six to nine months.
Initial discovery session and expectations setting:
The first step in any coaching program always consists of clarifying the main areas you want to develop, the outcome you want to achieve, and how you will know that you have met these objectives. In our initial discovery session, we usually meet for about two hours to discuss these points, and to get to know each other better. This is also the time when we will establish the ground rules for our relationship and clarify mutual expectations. The points covered in the initial discovery session will be formalized in an Engagement Letter. We then set out the coaching objectives, outcomes, and measures of success in a written Client Form.
Learning process supported through assessment tools:
Depending on the nature of our engagement, we might decide to use assessment tools to enhance and speed up your learning process. Typically, we use assessment tools during the first part of our coaching relationship so that we can use the learnings and outcomes later on.
Ongoing coaching sessions:
We will meet every two-three weeks until the end of the agreed coaching assignment. These meetings can take place in person, or by telephone or video conference, depending on your preference. For in-person meetings, we will meet in a conference room at your office, or at a convenient off-site location.
Checking in and reviewing progress:
We typically review progress mid-way through the program, and again at the end. During our last coaching session, we will evaluate the overall progress and agree on how you will sustain what you have learned.
