What is Professional Coaching?

Couple sitting cafe having a coaching session.

Think of a coach as a brainstorming partner.  I’ll work with a client to help them think through an issue or an area where they want to be more effective.  I don’t solve problems for them – they are active participants in the coaching process.  What I can do is provide an un

biased perspective, encourage  my clients to make the conscious choices that will move forward. One word of caution – a coach isn’t a therapist.  If you think you need the help of a professional therapist, please reach out to the appropriate providers.

I’ve been coaching for 15 years and have been trained in many different coaching frameworks.  I’m adaptive to my client’s needs and will provide a safe, compassionate environment. However, I will challenge my clients to help them explore new ways of thinking. Staying in our comfort zone doesn’t allow for growth!

How does the process work?

There are a few steps to beginning a coaching relationship.  It’s important to make sure the coach and client have a good relationship, they are working toward a stated goal, and have a clear understanding of the professional relationship between a coach and client. In the past, coaching was primarily conducted in-person.  However, these days we can also have effective coaching sessions via phone or video chat.   I can accommodate clients from all over the world.

This is the typical process:

  1.  We’ll meet to have an initial consultation.  The purpose of the meeting will be to discuss the client’s goals and determine if we are a good fit.
  2. If we determine to move forward with our professional relationship, we’ll discuss the coach/client contract outlining expectations of each party.
  3. We’ll determine the client’s goal for the coaching period so we can assess progress to goal at the end of our sessions.
  4. We’ll determine a meeting schedule and meet accordingly.  The client is always in charge of the sessions.  My job is to help encourage a growth mindset.
  5. At the end of our sessions, we’ll evaluate where the client is compared to goal.
