I do most of my coaching over the phone. Phone appointments make it easier for clients to fit coaching sessions into their busy schedules. All you really need is a quiet space, a phone, and some uninterrupted time. I suggest that you also have a method for taking notes so you can capture your ideas and insights. Occasionally, video meetings are the best format, like when a client is preparing for a presentation or oral examination, but phone sessions are the most common.
My therapist friends wonder how I do proper assessments when I can’t see the clients. Well, here’s the thing, I don’t do assessments. You do. Coaching is based on the belief that you, the client, are creative, wise, and full of answers. Don’t get me wrong, I also know – if you could have done it yourself, you would have done it already. As a coach, it is my job to help you identify and tap into all of your personal resources in order to make the progress you desire. It is also my role to listen, encourage, teach, motivate, challenge, support, and provide feedback.
I schedule coaching sessions at many different times of the day and across many time zones in order to work around my clients’ busy lives. I begin my individual coaching services with a free 60-minute consultation session. During the consultation session, we explore what you want to get out of coaching and see if I am a good fit for you and the work you want to do.
Once you choose to work with me, we will set up the coaching sessions and begin. So, take the step to begin your journey soon.
