My wish for you
I want you to benefit greatly from our coaching and the time in between. This guide outlines some of the things you can do to maximize the value of your coaching experience.
Focus On What You Really Want
Coaching works best when you have clear goals that are based on your true values. First, I encourage you to deeply consider what you want your life to look like. Then identify the gaps between the way things are now and how you would like them to be. Many people struggle with this, so if you are unsure about what it is you really want to achieve, coaching is an excellent tool that can provide you with greater clarity.
Get to Know Yourself Newly
Working with a sensitive and empathic coach is a healthy way to grow. Most clients hire a coach to work on specific goals, and much of the time focus on these objectives. Yet, with coaching, many clients discover new parts of themselves, and find they can adjust their goals to be more in alignment with who they really are. This discovery process is natural, and you do not need to concentrate on it, just realize it will likely happen. Accelerated personal and professional growth is the hallmark of coaching.
Double Your Level of Willingness
Part of working with me as your coach is that I will ask a lot of you. Not too much I hope, but perhaps more than you may have been asked recently. I request that you be willing to experiment with fresh approaches and try new beliefs. I will invite you to tell the absolute truth, raise your personal standards, and set higher goals. Ultimately, you need to decide what is best for you; however, the more willing you are to grow, the greater the benefits from coaching.
Come Prepared to Each Coaching Call
To get the most value out of the coaching session, I recommend that you prepare a written agenda for each call. Many of my clients use the provided "Coaching Prep Form". This does not have to be a big, time- consuming event, but usually only requires 5-20 minutes. Investing that small amount of time to prepare for the call and faxing or emailing an agenda to me beforehand, will have a huge impact on our session.
Do Your Homework
Each week you will decide on the actions or goals you want to focus. I expect you to keep the commitments you make and will work with you to make sure you are setting worthwhile, realistic, and achievable objectives. If you know that a busy week is ahead, your homework might be as simple as thinking about a new perspective. If you have more time, you might decide to handle a big task. Regardless, I will hold you accountable and encourage you to do your best. I ask that you do what you agree to do, OR let me know that you were unable to do it. Either way is fine. Not letting me know that you did not do what we agreed to does not work.
