What is The Process Like?
In our initial conversation, we identify areas you are looking to improve upon in order to achieve your goals as you set forth.
We set agreed upon expectations of each other in the coaching relationship and lay out the foundation of our work for future sessions.
In subsequent sessions, we will utilize active listening skills and skill based inventories as well as creative activities to explore the issues you choose to explore in order to move forward and achieve the goals you set forth. Session lengths may vary, but you can safely budget up to an hour per session.
Major strides can be made in a matter of a few sessions, but some people want someone to develop a continuing relationship that spans years, not weeks or months.
Either way, you will feel better that you will have expanded your awareness, improved your leadership tools and are better equipped to deliver messages the way you want them to be received. You will improve not only your confidence, but also your relationships in the workplace and ultimately achieve the successful outcomes you desire.
1. You set your goals
It’s a privlidge to join you on your journey. When setting goals its important they are clear, meaningful to you, have timelines and action items associated with them and that you feel committed to the outcomes.
2. We agree upon a schedule
Setting the calendar up front allows us to align milestones, setting aside time prioritize the conversations. Cancellations within 24 hours of a scheduled session are forfeited.
3. Using tools like Hogan, DISC, Strengths Finder, IMAP, MBTP or other assessments
You may have copies of previous assessments we can use, or we can use a tool to help you see sides of yourself, or habits you may leverage that may or may not serve you well. Assessment tool charges are billed separately outside of your session package as prices do vary. The debrief session will take a full session.
4. Utilize LEAN principals
Personal growth leads to trying new things, which allows us to evaluate results and outcomes and tweak the next action. The cycle is always moving and we are in different sections of the evolution at all times during coaching programs.
5. Focus on Core Values Awareness
Core values drive such a large part of ourselves, but many times go undiscovered, or undiscussed, until they are triggered. The root of all conflict is unmet expectations. Conflict that is in alignment with core values is functional. Conflict that is not in alignment with core values is dysfunctional.
