What is professional coaching?
Professional coaching is a form of career support that is centered around accountability. Coaching is a co-creative relationship between a coach and client that hones in on long-term goals and develops actionable and attainable steps towards them. The personalized guidance offered in a coaching relationship helps clients be more honest and compassionate towards themselves, providing them with dedicated time for growth.
Why not just ask a boss or best friend?
Coaches provide a third party perspective that is unbiased, creating more momentum and better goals, as well as helping the client to develop new skills.
Coaching seems like an investment...is it worth it?
Coaching is the ultimate investment in yourself. Not only can it expedite your career trajectory, but it can get you out of many sticky situations and back on the path to success. There's plenty of studies touting the benefits, but if you need additional direction, confidence, or want to reframe your mindset, coaching may be a fit for you.
What is my role in this?
While a coach is your ultimate accountability partner and #1 fan, as the client you have a big role to fill. You are responsible for developing a desired take-away or end state, and putting in the work to make it a reality. While you will be led in the right direction, you must take responsibility for your own actions and success.
Where do we meet?
All 1x1 coaching sessions can be run remotely via Google Hangout, allowing for face-to-face contact from wherever you call home. Outside of coaching, team and strategy sessions can be facilitated in person.
How much time do I need to commit?
You can't take one pill and hope it will cure you forever - the same can be said of coaching. While clients often want immediate results, they have to be willing to put in the work to internalize their new behaviors. That said, we can tailor your program to work in a way that's manageable for you.
How do we measure success?
The great thing about coaching is that you set your own goals. Your orientation work helps you identify your ideal outcome, so there's a clear metric of success for you and your coach.
