Coaching is a discussion between two people, the coach and you. Usually this is face to face, at a convenient location. Sometimes it can take place over the telephone, so you can be in the privacy of your own home or perhaps at work. Whichever suits you. The discussion usually lasts about 60 minutes, though the first session can take up to 90 minutes. So what happens during that time?
Invariably we talk about you. About what you want from coaching. Helping you achieve the clarity about what you want. Giving you the confidence to move towards that successful outcome. Of course, you need to take some steps to get there. The number of steps depends on what you want. A few big steps or more smaller steps. The steps you take depend on you.
Each session is tailored to help you achieve a step towards your outcome. There is no one-size-fits-all format or process. You are unique and so deserve a flexible approach that meets your needs. Your coach will work within a framework to ensure you stay on track, and give you all the support you need. A supportive relationship that will allow you to face up to the challenges. It is a partnership of equals, based on a shared feeling trust and empathy. Your coach will encourage you to stand on your own two feet. You have the solutions and the resources within you to move forward to where you want to be.
Coaching is different from therapy or counselling. Coaching focuses on the future. It helps you to create possibilities and opportunities. You have all you need to get there. You will find your own answers. Your coach simply guides you to your destination, inspiring and motivating you to take that first step towards your desired outcome. Then the next step, and the step after that. Only you can take those steps. Only you know what is right for you.
