Because each Professional Coach has his or her own style of coaching clients, you might be interested in knowing how I coach, what I expect of my clients and what my clients can expect of me.
My Clients Are Great
I am blessed with the privilege of choosing you, my clients. I want to enjoy each one of you. You are all growing, successful and well, and I am assisting you to further your personal, spiritual and professional lives.
If you are hiring me, then you’re probably ready to do and be your best. And if you aren’t doing your best, I’ll ask you to. If you can’t do that at the moment, I’ll understand and do what you need to be heard, loved and helped back on your path.
You Will Get Direct Requests
From time to time, I’ll give you a binding inquiry, like “Will you accomplish X by the end of the month?” You may say yes, say no, or offer another solution. I’ll make you right whichever way you respond.
You Will Get Straight Advice
If I am sure of the situation, and you’re open to it, I’ll make specific suggestions on how to handle a problem or “go-for-it” opportunity. If I am not sure, I’ll say so. Honesty is one of my values–I am straight and expect the same from you. Regardless, use the best of what I say and use your own judgment.
You Can’t Hide Much
When I hear a funny tone in your voice, or notice something amiss, I’ll ask you about it. Often, it is these small moments, which offer the chance to resolve something. However, I don’t confront or push; I’ll merely invite you to look at something.
You Get Challenges
We will come up with two or three goals, actions or shifts to have between one call and the next. If it is too much, say so. If you want more, just ask.
You Can Reach Out
You can lay it all out. If you have a personal problem, are disturbed with something (even me or the coaching), are just starting to realize something big, can’t wait to share a shift/win, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
