Coaching is an invaluable opportunity to take a step back from the busyness of work and reconnect with your inner wisdom
What is Coaching?
Coaching is a voluntary, confidential, one-to-one process in which a trained coach helps people who wish to enhance their performance or improve their work or some personal challenge that they are currently experiencing. It is a future-oriented and voluntary process that focuses on each person’s coaching goals.
As the Coach, my role is to support, assist and encourage the client accomplish what they want to achieve in relation to the challenges they face. Coaching focuses on assisting the client to gain increased awareness and insights about their situation that they can then use to help and empower them to take the next steps.
I will also provide constructive feedback in a non-judgmental and supportive way and to check in on a regular basis with the client to ensure they are progressing towards achieving goals they have set for themselves.
Coaching works best if the Client can engage in an open and honest manner in the process and be willing to work collaboratively and provide the time and energy to fully participate.
The Client is also accountable for following through on any tasks or actions that have been agreed upon during the session.
The Client is solely responsible for all decisions and actions in relation to his/her goals.
How does Coaching Work
Coaching usually starts with an initial ‘taster’ session to give both the Coach and Client an opportunity to see if they are a ‘good fit’ for each other. The Client gets to reflect on what sort of outcomes or ‘goals’ they would like to achieve in the coaching and share their expectations and hopes from coaching.
Coaching usually commences then with Coach and Client signing a Coaching Agreement which outlines clearly how coaching works, the respective roles of each and highlights the confidentiality of the coaching process.
Duration/Number of Sessions
This will depend on the client and what it is they are hoping to achieve but 4-6 Coaching sessions are usually the minimum required to effect some of the changes the client is trying to make.
Sessions can take place either face-to-face* or by phone/video conference at times/dates mutually agreed between the Coach and Client.
*Face-t0-face sessions can take place on-site (will incur additional travel costs) or in our base in Carrick-on-Shannon, Co Leitrim.
Sessions usually last from 1-2 hours and again, this is agreed between the Coach and Client, and depends on the client’s requirements and availability to engage in the coaching process.
