How Does Our Coaching Work?
We are partners in this process
Every person is different, so we can approach our work together as you need it. It can be a short-term issue or decision you want to resolve, or it can be a longer-term complex goal you want to achieve with numerous accomplishments embedded within it. Different packages are available to suit your needs.
Your "Thought Partner"
What does that mean? We'll clarify YOUR goals and determine how best to achieve them. It usually entails exploring your thoughts through questions and reflection rather than offering my thoughts. Although if I have some specific expertise in an area you're interested in, I’m happy to answer any questions or provide resources. (And I have been known to have occasional opinions, if you want to hear them.)
I generally use a change process framework I developed for organizations, but have adapted for complex situations in individual coaching. It has five aspects that appear linear, but there is always an opportunity for iteration – maybe your goals shift as you gain clarity. Perhaps you recognize one of your values has more, or less, importance as we work together. Something in the environment could alter your situation or priorities. We can always modify and respond agilely to change. You are the ultimate decision maker in our relationship.
Typically, we begin by clarifying what Vision or goals you have, then confirm how they Align with your values and environment. You might take an optional assessment to give us a foundation for discussion of your strengths and what’s important to you. Then we'd explore possibilities for Designing a plan and a way to Execute it to achieve your goals. Lastly, we would identify any obstacles to your Sustaining that goal and create any reward or habit system needed to support that accomplishment.
