How I coach
I treat my clients as equal partners. We collaborate and share in the responsibility of moving you from where you are now to where you want to be. While we are equal, we have different roles in the relationship. As the client, you are responsible for bringing the agenda to each session and moving your objectives forward. As coach, my job is to provide challenging questions and insights to help deepen your learning.
Every program is designed to meet a client’s specific needs. A “typical” structure entails establishing desired outcomes up front, then meeting three to four times per month for a minimum of six months. I’ll suggest assignments that will stretch you so you can achieve your goals. It goes without saying that our coaching relationship is a confidential one – though your progress will be apparent to everyone around you.
What to expect
What makes a coaching program successful is the level of connection and trust between coach and client. The power comes from the relationship more than the methodology. I don’t shy away from my Midwestern tendency to be direct with my clients. I am an honest, compassionate straight-shooter who is not afraid to “go there” even when things get tough. Above all, I am your champion. I will believe in you when you don’t necessarily believe in yourself. I am committed to your success and will make sure we share some laughs along the way.
My clients inspire me and teach me new things every day and that makes being their coach a privilege and honor. I invite you to have a complimentary 45-minute coaching session with me to see if we’d be a good fit. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
