The coaching process

To determine whether you or your organisation will benefit from coaching, you could start by writing down what you would expect to accomplish in coaching.

We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them – A. Einstein

Coaching is a partnership, which means that you can ask yourself whether collaboration and new perspectives are valued- after all you as a coachee may choose to be held accountable and to make a commitment to take action. Also, ask yourself whether you or your business is ready to devote the time and the energy to making real changes. If the answer is yes, then coaching may be a beneficial way to nurture, grow and sustain.When you have some clarity about a desired outcome, a coaching partnership can be a very useful tool for developing a strategy for how to achieve that outcome more effortlessly.

The next part of the process is to discuss by phone the practical considerations, like the number and dates and times for coaching sessions, related costs, structure and parameters of what will be included in the coaching relationship.
