What I’d like you to know before choosing to work with me

I feel it’s important that as you consider entering into a coaching relationship, you are provided with information that helps you understand what coaching involves, what it asks of you and what it ‘looks’ like.

Are you willing to ‘take a look’ and to do things that are outside your norm?  This is where new seeing and new development takes place.

I am offering to work with you on a topic that deeply matters to you; one that you’ve likely had difficulty making progress in and/or sustaining progress in. I am also offering an approach to change that focuses on the development of competencies in you that enable you to be in your coaching topic in a new way and achieve new results.

When we work together I will design a customized Coaching Program for you, one that is tailored to meet you where you are and enables you to make meaningful progress on your topic. Your Coaching Program is designed to support you in making meaningful progress in your coaching topic.

I am not offering you a strategic plan with a series of action steps that you are then held accountable for executing while I motivate you to take these actions. I am not going to ‘fix’ you.

In between coaching meetings you can expect that you will need to actively engage in daily exercises and practices that are custom designed for you and the focus of your development in your Coaching Program. I will encourage, support and challenge you to take a look at yourself and to try ‘different’ as part of your development.

If you’re interested then give me a call and lets meet. Our first meeting is free and allows us both an opportunity to see whether there is a good ‘fit’.

 

Integral Coaching ® Conversations and Programs

Three Part Integral Coaching ® Conversation

If you find yourself pressed for time or aren’t quite sure about hiring a coach you might consider a three part conversation which includes the following:

Intake: We meet for 1.5-2 hours and I come to understand what your coaching topic looks like today and what it will look and feel like once it is attained. I get to learn about who you are, how you make sense of your topic and much more.

Offer: Two-three weeks after the Intake, we meet for 1.5 hours and I offer to you your coaching program. This includes insight into your current way of approaching your topic, a new way of moving forward in your topic and then some necessary steps to take in service of taking action on your topic. I will offer to you integral exercises and practices that will support you making progress in your topic.

Follow up: One month after the Offer, we meet for 1 hour to review and debrief your practices and exercises. We also look at and discuss possible adjustments and a few next steps. You then go forward and continue to work on your development. While I may informally check in on you later on, you embark on your coaching program on your own.

Cycles of Development: We meet for 1 to 1.5 hours every 2-3 weeks and in between meetings you engage with exercises and practices specific to you making progress in your coaching topic. The purpose of these meetings is to facilitate and support you through the stretches (the highs and the lows) of your development as you build new muscles that will expand how you are able to be in your topic in a way that supports fulfillment of your topic.

Completion: We meet for 1.5 hours to recognize and acknowledge the journey we’ve been on, the progress you have made and what is now possible beyond the coaching program.

 

Coaching programs usually last from 5-12 months, depending on the scope of your topic.
