Coaching is very personal to the individual concerned and our programmes are always tailored accordingly, however here are some answers to some frequently asked questions about how coaching tends to be structured:
Is coaching always on an individual basis?
No, coaching can take place as a team under some circumstances. Life coaching is obviously a very personal thing and so would always be carried out on an individual basis but in a corporate setting, team coaching may be suitable and we can always advise on this. Team coaching programmes are structured around team requirements.
How long are coaching sessions?
To a great degree, sessions vary in duration to suit the need and the individual’s schedule.
How structured is each individual session?
Whilst the coaching journey is organic, each session is focussed on working to achieve desired outcomes. Typically, we may focus on self-awareness to begin with, then look at making sense of it all, and then how to take ownership of change with confidence.
Where is coaching carried out?
Sessions can take place in the workplace, but it’s often better to get a change of scene with no interruption or distraction, that’s why we like to conduct our sessions in relaxing venues.
How many coaching sessions are required?
Usually 4 – 6 sessions are enough for individuals to see and feel a positive difference and for the impact to be noticed by others. Some people like to have an ongoing coaching relationship to draw upon as and when they require.
What results can be expected?
Coaching sessions are tailored around specific desired outcomes which will vary from individual to individual but typically, coaching can be expected to help improve work performance, business management, time management, team effectiveness, self-confidence, work relationships, communication skills and work-life balance.
Is coaching confidential?
All sessions are completely confidential and are performed under a coaching contract.
