What is coaching?
During coaching we are guiding our client to find her own specific solution. In this process, the coach does not advise what the solution should be: the client works on finding a doable solution that he or she able to execute and will make a difference in her or his situation. The coach drives the whole process: keeps the focus on the issue, clarifies the issue, helps to search for alternatives, reinforces, empathizes and acts as true mirror: provides helpful feedback. As the result of the engagement the coachee not only solves the problem at hand but typically becomes more capable finding her own solutions alone in the future as well.
When should I consider working with a coach?
There are many work or life situations where coaching can be a solution. If you see your career does not progress as you wish for example. Or you’d like to get more out of your team but something gets in the way. Coaching can also help in personal life challenges, for issues that at the moment you might have hard time even to define precisely. If you feel you got stuck, something stops you from achieving something important in your life.
Our team has experience with life coaching (e.g. clarifying purpose, setting objectives for a successful and complete life, overcoming obstacles), business coaching (e.g. supporting the owner or management for a higher quality service, or finding a better work/life balance) as we as executive coaching focusing on leading a corporation or a larger team, achieving behavior changes for better results. Our approach is practical and goal-oriented. Our ultimate objective is to grow our coachees’ self-awareness and self-mastery in order to help them to overcome their future challenges, and to unleash their true potential.
Frequently Asked Questions
- In what questions do you provide advises? How do I know it will be truly helpful for me?
Unlike consulting coaching is not about providing advises. Its value becomes visible in every step as you get closer to find your own solution.
- How is it different from training?
Coaching is a highly personal, individual methodology where the coachee and the coach forms the objective and framework in which they work. In training the emphasis is on knowledge transfer, while in coaching we focus on applying what you already know.
- How long is a coaching process?
Typically, we agree in ten meetings, each meeting is 1-1,5 hours long. While we can be flexible on the frequency of sessions, we strongly advise not to have more than two weeks between two occasions.
- Can you do coaching remotely?
In coaching, there’s an emphasis in establishing a trustful relationship. While this is easier to be created in a face-to-face environment, we have positive experiences with doing remote sessions as well.
- How do you provide an offer for a coaching?
We offer a free initial engagement to identify the issue, agree on the framework and the process we will follow. By the end of that session we make our individual offer to our clients. Their feedback confirms that they get a lot a value out of the engagement with us.
