Our first session will overview the coaching journey; where are we starting from, where are we going, what will success look like and what might be key milestones, along the way. Where we are starting from is often assessed independently, with the use of a 360 survey and other objective tools, which shed light on the client’s current reality.
Coaching always follows the client’s agenda, with clients coming to a session with between one to three topics. As the sessions progress we also allow time to discuss what’s been happening in the ‘real world’, since our last session. We make sense of what’s going on in the ‘real world’ by, understanding it within the client’s wider organisational system, introducing perspective-giving frameworks reflective of current leadership thinking.
Sessions take place in a private space, mostly in the coach’s or the client’s office, but can also be in a neutrally agreed venue or via Skype/phone. The first two sessions are always face-to-face, to ensure a relationship of mutual trust and rapport is established.
Coaching sessions are typically two hours, once a month, for between 6-12 months.
