Why does coaching work?
 
 
Coaching works when there are two factors present: 1) You are willing to grow, and 2) There is a gap between where you are now and where you want to be.

Successful coaching clients know the value of sharing ideas with someone who understands them and is subjective enough not to want a lot for them, yet objective enough not to be biased or self-serving. Talking about options with someone who can listen, is often enough to have it all become very clear.
 


Where do you start with a coach?
 
 
Most coaches begin with a special client meeting or call to get to know each other. The coach wants to hear about the client's goals, needs, and problems. The client wants to get comfortable with the coach. During this meeting, both parties design a list of goals and a game plan to reach these goals.
How do the coaching sessions work?
 
Coaching is usually done over the phone. In addition to allowing frequent, regular contact, it makes it easy to stay in the "coaching relationship", since the client can call from their office, home, car or hotel. The person coached completes a coaching call strategy form prior to each call, describing the current challenges and the progress they've made since the last call. Most people are coached two hours a month, in either four 30-minute sessions, three 40-minute sessions or two 1-hour sessions.

The focus of the call is determined by the client. The coach helps them to solve their problems and make the most of their opportunities. When they are missing a principle or distinction, we draw one so they can see a whole lot better. When they are taking on a large goal, we help them design a project and provide the support and structure needed to make sure it gets done. We bring out the clients best by offering advice, expecting a lot, helping them strategize and celebrating the wins. There is often "fieldwork", where the client is given a formula, new perspective or a challenge to try something in a new way. That forms the basis for the next call.

How can a Leader use a coach?
 
 

 Coaching creates an environment where there is freedom from judgment and freedom from expectations that an executive behave according to typical corporate mandates. In this environment it is safe to question, to appear vulnerable, to observe, to explore, experiment, to learn and change.

 

That allows the leader to use the coach...

...To reach high targets and quotas. 

 
...For business planning, budgeting and goal-setting.


...To integrate business and personal life for balance.


...To prioritize actions and projects.


...For training, developing and managing staff.


...To turn around a difficult situation.


...To handle business or personal problems.
