What preparation is required before the introductory coaching session? You will be sent an email with 3-4 questions to answer that needs to be returned 24 hours prior to your scheduled session. You will also receive a Zoom invite with details for the meeting.
What is the process to begin the coaching engagement? Once the introductory session is a success, you will be emailed a comprehensive intake form to complete before your 1st session that needs to be returned 48 hours prior to your scheduled session.
What personality assessments are used? I use a variety of assessments that include: Emotional Intelligence, Myers-Briggs, Hogan, Workaholism, Workplace Big 5, Careaholism, Strengths Finder, and others. Other tools are often used such as a balance wheel exercise and journaling.
How long does a coaching engagement last? How long an engagement lasts varies. It typically lasts for a minimum of 6 months, however, many can go longer sometimes for years - it really depends upon the client's needs.
Where do coaching sessions take place? All sessions are virtual and are conducted by Zoom or by phone depending upon the client's preference.
What is the policy for cancellations? 24 hour notice is appreciated. If a session needs to be rescheduled please contact me at the earliest time possible. If less than a 24 hour notice is given then it will be at my discretion whether to charge or not for the session. No shows will be charged for the session missed.
What happens if I don't complete my "homework" between sessions? There is no penalty for incomplete "homework" so no need to reschedule or miss a session. However, the old adage applies . . . you are only hurting yourself by not doing the work.
As a coach, will you tell me what to do? I definitely will not tell you what to do, that is not the role of a coach. I will ask you questions and facilitate your self-awareness to help you find your best path forward.
