How I work.

How I coach.

The fit between a coach and client is critical. Each coaching process is designed to meet the unique needs of individual clients. This includes setting objectives, guiding the client towards a deeper understanding of critical issues, and ensuring they are targeting the areas with the greatest potential impact on the organization as well as their personal development.

There is no defined term for everyone, but typically I work with clients over a period of approximately six to ten months, with coaching sessions roughly once a month. I am also available, during that time, for phone and email contact.

Set clear objectives.

Coaching is most powerful when the leader and coach work towards achieving clearly defined objectives.

Deepen understanding.

Exploring what might be getting in the way, looking for patterns and themes, asking targeted questions.

Amplify strengths.

Identifying and amplifying strengths helps leaders gain confidence and achieve quick wins.

Broaden options.

Challenging leaders to adapt their approach builds new opportunities and creates long-term change.

Shift perspectives.

Leaders often need to change their vantage point and re-examine issues from another perspective.

Review progress.

At the end of the coaching, reviewing progress against objectives and defining next steps.

My clients appreciate…

A balance of informality and structure offers them the openness they need to find the fundamental issues getting in their way, define options that they truly “own,” and relate this back to the coaching objectives.
