How does Executive Coaching work?
You and your coach have an initial meeting, this can be virtual or in person to decide if you have the right “chemistry” to work together. If you both want to progress, then you will meet either virtually or in person on a regular basis. Your coach will explore questions with you, which in many cases, can be challenging and which you have possibly been avoiding. It is through the process of questioning discussion that ideas are generated, and you will decide what really needs to be acted on. This then creates your set of commitments to act on. If your coach has specific insights or knowledge to share that might help you (or speed up the process) they will share them with you.
How long would the Coach/Coachee work together?
Typically, it’s a six to twelve-month commitment as this is a reasonable time frame in which to see strong and sustainable results. Coaching is not a “quick fix” solution. There are clients who have worked with us for a number of years making continuous improvements and others who meet their specific goals in just six months.
What’s the Coach's responsibility?
In each interaction, the coach should act with integrity, sincerity and confidentiality. The coach needs to be fully present for each interaction setting aside all other distractions creating a safe space with support and encouragement to explore and take appropriate risks. If the coach cannot provide appropriate assistance, they should refer you to a range of resources.
What’s my responsibility as the Coachee?
Coachees need to be open and committed to action and self-development; ready to explore what they are doing and not doing and what decisions and changes they may need to make in order to move forward.
How is Coaching different from therapy or counselling?
Coaching focuses on looking forward to the future. Therapy and counselling largely focus on your history and analysing how you got to your present state. Therapists and counsellors often ask question starting with why –coaches usually ask questions starting with what.
Can you guarantee Coaching works?
Unfortunately, you can’t. Coaching is designed to make the coachee more successful and ultimately, only you as the coachee can guarantee that you will do what it takes to make this happen. If you as coachee don’t complete the actions you commit to take, you won’t see the same levels of progress.
How much does Coaching cost?
The key question for you as a prospective coachee, is how much do you value the service? Price should not be used as an excuse to not to go for it. If you are interested and committed to developing yourself and your business and have a budget in mind, please contact us to discuss how we can help you further as we would be very interested in exploring working together.
