What is coaching?
Coaching is a relationship, independent of the expectations and demands often associated with normal home and work lives. The development of the coaching relationship helps clients deepen their learning, improve their performance and enhance their quality of life.
At its core the coaching relationship assumes that you, as the client, are the expert and the coach works to provide the best possible environment for your growth and development.
Coaching can help build a clearer perspective and provide solutions to issues that are important to you.
Examples of typical issues that a coach may help with:
1. -dealing with or facilitating change
2. -reducing stress or resolving conflict
3. -increasing productivity
4. -enhancing creativity
5. -setting and achieving goals
What does a typical coaching session look like?
Each session is tailored to your unique demands and circumstances. It could take the form of a half-day meeting once a month or a weekly half hour telephone conversation. The exact details will be worked out during an initial consultation and will evolve as the coaching relationship develops. Typically we’ll agree a schedule with an initial commitment of between three and six sessions.
You will determine the agenda for each session which will provide an opportunity to talk about an issue that you may have been thinking about for some time. Through a process of listening and questioning I will help encourage you towards deeper thinking and reflection which in turn will offer you greater awareness of choice and possibility.
In time - days, weeks or even months - you will find resolution to the problems you have been wrestling with, discovering new energy and becoming more productive and effective in your personal and professional lives.
